Abstract

The formation of the entrepreneur as a person for digital transformation is important and considered, in a large part, to be due to learning. Entrepreneurship is “a process of new value creation” and digital entrepreneurship is understood as “a subcategory of entrepreneurship in which some or all of what would be physical in a traditional organization has been digitized”. The integration of artificial intelligence - AI into business world can automatize some tasks and make entrepreneurs more “creative” and fulfilled, which would obviously benefit the companies that they work for.” Entrepreneurial learning is a basis for education of entrepreneurs and should supports digital entrepreneurship within the process of designing, lunching and running a new business within digital transformation. It should include AI courses in the learning and teaching process to achieve AI Literacy competence.

The first part of the paper includes results of literature review and of interviews that the author has done with entrepreneurs within some European projects about different forms of entrepreneurship, particularly digital entrepreneurship and the use of AI. A review of literature about entrepreneurial learning and basis components, which characterizes it, is given in the next part including also experience of the author in teaching and training entrepreneurs

The last part of the paper presents some new approaches within education by using entrepreneurial learning including AI Literacy oriented to digital workplaces and digital entrepreneurship. Developments within European projects with the participation of the authors are also given.
