Creating the next generation of Entrepreneurs


I believe that it is possible to create thousands of entrepreneurs tomorrow through instilling entrepreneurship mindset and skill-set in children today. The framework is developed to create transformation in individuals and the community. My research experiments at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Asia School of Business have shown that innovators and entrepreneurs can be nurtured from the general population. This framework to prepare pre-entrepreneurs, who are ready to take on their next steps in solution creation and venture building, has been applied in more than fifty workshops in seven countries reaching more than two thousand participants.
