The Innovation and Gig Economy requires students to graduate with an entrepreneurial mindset (opportunity recognition, critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, innovation, initiative, collaboration, etc.) even if they do not start their own business. 40% of Americans have a side hustle and nearly 50% of today’s youth say they intend to start their own business someday. Entrepreneurial skills are an increasingly essential part of workforce development and overlap with the workplace readiness skills employers say they want in new hires in a rapidly changing workplace. This webinar will share these and other research-based reasons to integrate entrepreneurship across middle and high school subjects in order to empower students with an entrepreneurial mindset needed for success in school, careers, and life. The Online Entrepreneurship Institute in Spring 2024 (dates TBA) and U.S. Entrepreneurship Certification Examination will also be discussed.
Fee: NO CHARGE
Zoom link will be emailed the day of the webinar to registered participants.
