The OECD is working with the European Commission, DG Employment and Social Affairs to examine the barriers faced to business creation and self-employment by people who are disadvantaged or under-represented in entrepreneurship activities - youth, seniors, the disabled, women, ethnic minorities, the unemployed and others - and the public policy actions that can promote ans support these activities.

Each year, a report called 'The Missing Entrepreneurs' is produced to disseminate an evidence base on inclusive entrepreneurship and self-employment activities and policies in the EU.  This report includes a 'best practice' report concerning inclusive entrepreneurship from each participating country.  The reports for 2014 and 2015 feature the following projects carried out by The Edward de Bono Institute:

The 'Hands-on' Project 

The 'Hands-on' project was designed to develop entrepreneurship skills amongst students with special needs attending Guardian Angel Secondary Education Resource Centre and Dun Manwel Attard Young Adult Education Resource Centre in Malta. It involved the design and delivery of a tailor-made training programme in entrepreneurship skills for educators serving at these two Resource Centres, followed by the transfer of the newly acquired entrepreneurship skills from the educators to their students through a process of coaching and mentoring.  

The 'My WoW' Project 

The 'My WoW' (World of Work) project involved the design and delivery of two tailor-made training programmes in entrepreneurship skills, one for students and the other for educators, together with the setting up of a school-based 'mini-enterprise'. The aim of this project was to develop entrepreneurial skills and mind-sets amongst students, many of whom had a history of low academic achievement and may have therefore been at risk of exclusion from employment and entrepreneurship opportunities later on in life.
