From Entrepreneurial Process to Entrepreneurial Mindset: Strategies and Frameworks for Schools

Michael Crawford, Chief Academic Officer at ELI, presented to more than 100 high school principals and staff from across Africa during the Circle of Excellence Principals’ Conference 2015, hosted by the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation.

In his presentation, Crawford described how entrepreneurship redefined makes it relevant for everyone, especially educators looking to help students develop entrepreneurial mindsets. The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program was featured in the presentation as an example of how the entrepreneurial process has been translated into academic curricula, and attendees had opportunities to brainstorm and discuss ways they could bring aspects of entrepreneurship to their schools and students.
