The purpose of this paper is to describe the EHIS Method©
(Entrepreneurship Human Interactions Skills), an

innovative entrepreneurship teaching and learning method developed and
used at the Entrepreneurship course at

Portucalense University (UPT), a private higher education institution in
Portugal. EHIS Method© draws on insights from the

recent literature on entrepreneurship education and is applied to teach
Entrepreneurship in several study programs at UPT,

such as Psychology, Social Education, Tourism, Economics, Law,
Management, Informatics, Management and Information

Systems and Hospitality Management. The students are grouped into teams
and challenged to develop an entrepreneurship

project, which consists of four different steps: (1) the idea
discovery/generation; (2) from the idea to the business model; (3)

from the business model to the business plan; (4) from the business plan
to the preparation of the application to the Net

UPT (business incubator of UPT). Throughout the EHIS Method©, students
have to successfully go through a variety of

assessment elements, held at different times, encompassing different
activities and skills and involving different types of

evaluators: (a) teachers/mentors; (b) university professors and (c)
potential investors.
