We are inspired by any entrepreneur - regardless of successful or failed - because of the impact he has on the world and the contribution to the economy. Especially in the middle of the worldwide crisis entrepreneurs' are wanted and needed for pushing the economy forwards by creating impactful solutions and jobs. Thus, I want to empower an entrepreneurship-led world and enable the valuable competencies every individual entails.

Though, for entrepreneurs to be enabled they need competencies. 74% of Startups have problems to recruit competent personal. On top of that - posting job ads and recruiting tools are pricey. On the flipside, entrepreneurial spirits (i.e. students) don’t have access to startup vacancies because no platform which matches startups with competencies is existing.

What it does

The CompetencePool is enabling competencies by connecting startups with entrepreneurial spirits! Here we are enabling startups to grow with new competencies and entrepreneurial spirits to start.  It is a two-sided internet platform that matches Startups with potential competencies, tracks existing startups worldwide and gives space to create new ideas to found new startups. But not only by matching competencies but also by providing entrepreneurship-enabling services the ConpetencePool contributes to the ENTREPRENEURIAL EMPOWERMENT.
