    Abstract: Today literacy is the springboard for a successful life. In the current world, it cannot be illiterate. And it is not just literacy in the basic sense, i.e. the ability to read, write and alternatively also count, but to have the whole range of other types of literacy that are usually specified by the adjective before the word literacy itself. One of them is also economic literacy. Literacy is understood as a set of competencies, i.e. the abilities of a given individual realized in the context of reality. The type of literacy then determines what competences, i.e. what area is related. Economic literacy should thus be defined as a set of certain competencies in the economic sphere. The aim of the text is therefore to discuss the approach to defining entrepreneurial competences and defining the concept of economic literacy of the entrepreneur.
