2022 Entrepreneurship in Education Webinar Series
Suddenly the world has changed in ways that now require everyone to be more innovative and entrepreneurial, regardless of their chosen path.
Yet our understanding of both the entrepreneurial person and the entrepreneurial process is not well understood. As a result, our systems of education and organizational structures have not kept pace.
In this monthly webinar series, ELI Founder Gary Schoeniger will speak with a wide variety of thought leaders, evangelists, and stakeholders. In each webinar, Gary and guests will discuss the importance of entrepreneurship education as a societal change agent while also highlighting innovative approaches and best practices as well as cultural and institutional barriers. Check out our upcoming guests and topics. These events are free and open to all.
