Discovering a Ground-Breaking Approach to Entrepreneurship Education
Learn how using the wisdom and insight gathered from real-world entrepreneurs changes students’ lives. In an engaging, media-rich session, we will discuss how educators can bring the knowledge and experience of successful entrepreneurs into their classrooms.
We believe there are vital aspects of entrepreneurship that are often overlooked and are difficult to convey (i.e., from a simple textbook) in traditional entrepreneurship education programs. In response, we have conducted extensive video interviews of real-world entrepreneurs from all walks of life and have captured their stories, wisdom, and insight.
From their experience and knowledge, we have distilled the essential aspects of entrepreneurship: how entrepreneurs think, how they view the world, how they are able to recognize opportunities, and how they are able to marshal the resources to transform those opportunities into successful new ventures.
Our program brings some of the world’s most compelling entrepreneurs right into the classroom. We combine streaming video, print content, student exercises, and teacher guides into a dynamic curriculum that offers educators the option of 100% online delivery or a blended learning format in the classroom.
In a spirited session, we will share a sample of our media-rich content and will discuss how educators can bring (in a peer-to-peer learning environment) the extremely valuable knowledge and experience of successful entrepreneurs into their classrooms.
