Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
This would be my first entrepreneurial initiative but I am very committed, I have always demonstrated managerial skills and I trully believe in the potential of the project and in my potential for coordinating, look for solutions or find guidance when needed. I also feel backed up by some teachers that have followed the entire process of the project creation whom are specialists in the field and may advise me when needed. I am actively taking courses on entreprenurial skills and looking for resources that may help develop the app.
