4th International Entrepreneurship Educators Symposium 2019
Entrepreneurship as a Vehicle for Nation Building

IEES 2018

Entrepreneurship has been widely accepted as a means to transform minds, economies and living standards of people. It has unleashed itself in various forms and is breaking the traditional barriers of age, education, gender etc. to pursue an entrepreneurial career. The concepts of effectuation (Darden), ETA (Entrepreneurial Thought and Action) (Babson) and Lean startup methodology
(Stanford) has transformed the entrepreneurship pedagogy.

This disruption in entrepreneurship teaching is manifesting itself in various forms i.e. Goldman Sachs entrepreneurship program for women and small business, the Flatiron school offering four months’ program in ICT based entrepreneurship, technology entrepreneurship, agriculture entrepreneurship, “A hen a kid” in Africa and the Bare foot college movement in India has transformed the life of millions. Moreover, Akhuwat foundation is writing history in Pakistan by introducing the concept of zero interest micro-finance. Entrepreneurship is moving beyond making money and is in search of solutions which are socially, ethically, economically and environmentally sustainable and make the world a better place.
