Dual Career of Elite Athletes
272 306 €
Elite athletes have an outstanding potential to become successful businessmen and women. The entrepreneurship is a career option for high-level athletes. They could use their skills, networks and profile to start their own business during or after their sporting career.
However, due to their busy schedule, they often miss out on specific education and training. Often athletes have not had the time to develop other interests so rely on their social capital when the time comes to find another career.
Due to intensive training and competition schedule, elite athletes have a hard time keeping up with the requirements of the labour market in terms of business career including self-employability.
For this reason, ELCAMP project is based on the “Bootcamp” approach, which is one of the most effective methods for them to keep up with this changing and developing labour market.
The special aims of the ELCAMP project are:
R3: Sport Entrepreneurship Bootcamp Toolkits
Catholic University of Murcia
Lithuanian Sports University
Molde University College
National Olympic Committee of Slovenia
European Athlete as Student
