An international audience of 68 joined this webinar to explore how to grow ecosystems for entrepreneurship and learn about the entreTime toolkit for educators. The webinar opened with a short scene-setting presentation from Klaus Sailer, the CEO of Strascheg Centre for Entrepreneurship and the coordinator of the entreTime initiative.
Klaus highlighted, that old-fashioned attitudes in teaching entrepreneurship sometimes still persist, focusing predominantly on theoretical skills such as how to write a business plan. A more constructive approach lies in active and practical teaching equipping students with the skills, competences and experience they need to be able to address today’s challenges and the requirements of complex work environments. Entrepreneurship can be key to meeting these needs, but educators themselves must be trained in entrepreneurial competences in order to teach their students effectively.
