Entrepreneurship is Key to Improving Education

We believe an entrepreneurial mindest is the most powerful force to improve education outcomes, prepare people for a rapidly changing world and empower them to play a role in shaping the future.

Education Entrepreneurship Should Be Collaborative

We believe collaboration between educators, students, developers, designers and business professionals will result in high-impact education solutions.

Education Entrepreneurs is the Catalyst for Innovation

We believe the unique experiential learning opportunities that Education Entrepreneurs provides have a catalytic effect, empowering people to think differently and create better solutions to education’s biggest problems.
