Francesco Rullani, Assistant Professor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at LUISS University
The first time I was asked to prepare a syllabus for a course on entrepreneurship I stared at the blank sheet for a while. The main dilemma I had was how to teach it. While studying the topic, I encountered many ideas, theories, hints and cases, but in that moment I had to select the right pieces and compose a meaningful picture. Basically, I was uncertain of which teaching method to use, and more importantly, connecting it with the content I had to deliver.
Prof. János Vecsenyi
Entrepreneurship education became trendy in higher education during the last couple decades. I have focused my attention on higher education, since I’ve been working there for many years, but I assume that the findings remain valid for primary and secondary schools as well.
Michał Dżoga, Corporate Affairs Manager at Intel Corporation
Throughout the many years of fostering youth entrepreneurial learning from a corporate perspective, our company always followed a line of focus that fell within our main area of expertise. Intel, as the largest worldwide computer chip maker, is always looking for the impact that technology has on our everyday lives. What role does technology play in today’s entrepreneurial boom?
Prof Thomas Cooney, Professor in Entrepreneurship at the Dublin Institute of Technology
One of the great myths surrounding entrepreneurship is that it is concerned solely with the creation of a new business, and by extension the generation of wealth for the entrepreneur who established it.
Emilian Pavel, Member of the European Parliament
I believe that youth entrepreneurship is not only an opportunity, but also a duty for Europe.
It is our chance to pull young people out of a desperate situation created by a devastating economic crisis, and give them not only the means to find employment, but also the means to generate more quality jobs and drive growth all over Europe.
