Educating Transformative Entrepreneurs at University

University of Minnesota and the Talloires Network

A growing number of universities around the world offer programmes that educate students to be entrepreneurs. This is an exciting and promising trend in light of the global youth employment crisis. Reliance on existing businesses to create jobs cannot possibly resolve this situation – a focus on business creation is essential. Institutions of higher education need to equip students to create a vast number of new enterprises and new jobs.

Making Cents International
In September, Making Cents International convened our 11th annual Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit (GYEO Summit).

Setting Young People on a Path to Lifelong Success

Stanford Social Innovation Review

Youth Enterprise: The Role of Gender and Life Stage in Motivations, Aspirations and Measures of Success

Journal of Education and Work

‘Enterprise’ has increasingly become part of the United Kingdom’s political grammar and efforts to develop entrepreneurial traits and activities in young people have been a key strand of this policy focus. As the 2008 economic recession saw a curtailed youth labour market, enterprise emerged as an appealing policy ‘solution’ to youth unemployment. Traditional measures of enterprise chart the numbers of new businesses and their survival rates.
