In this study we propose a new methodology for entrepreneurial education and we present a set of items used to assess students acquisition of competences needed to perform innovation. Previous research has already proposed a set of methodology to perform business model innovation in spinoffs, but our approach is more comprehensive since it covers a larger spectrum of soft skills it compares the perception of team members and their coaches. We tested our model in an entrepreneurial course, which has been given for more than ten years. The results show a difference of perception among team members and coaches, even though they might indicate two sides of the same coins. Considerations for further research are discussed in the conclusions.
