Why Entrepreneurship Education is Good for Local Economies

Posted By Karen-Michelle Mirko, Monday, November 18, 2013

Excited to be live blogging from the NACCE Miami Dade College Summit! 

Presenter: Doan Winkel, NACCE Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellow


How Do Ecosystems Work and Why are They Needed?

'Entrepreneur is someone who thinks differently and sees an opportunity and how to solve it. Ecosystems grow over generations. Make sure there is diversity (YES!) and you celebrate small victories. Entrepreneurs should build it but be sure to involve ecosystem partners like academia and government. Vibrant ecosystems grow economies.'

'Recruiting businesses is insufficient. You grow a local economy where people want to live when you launch and grow businesses. People will want to live there, engage in meaningful work and people purse their passions. It is an exciting place to live!'


Seed Entrepreneurship Across Generations 

'Incite entrepreneurial thinking from kindergarten to career. Don't start at the educational system. Start this work in the community and offer an experiential opportunity and be inclusive. Excite the community and show results and then go to your local institution.'

How do you teach entrepreneurship?

'Innovate in the classroom. Lecturing does not work. Provides experiential learning experiences. Do not just model the real world, but create it (and get out into it).'

'Give your students the ownership of their classroom experience - students choose content, grade themselves, mentoring each other, create discussion, give assignments and assess the learning.'
