Abstract

In this study, we describe the development of the entrepreneurship education system in the Basque Country and its provinces. The purpose of our research work is to identify the players who offer different entrepreneurship education programmes, to analyse the main features of such programmes, and most importantly, to assess their effectiveness for enhancing entrepreneurial activity in the Basque region. Using data from the global entrepreneurship monitor (GEM) project, our findings show that individuals who have participated in several entrepreneurship education programmes during successive stages of their lifespan are more likely not only to engage in the creation of new ventures, but also in launching more foreign-market oriented and innovation driven larger size start-ups.
