There is a need in the current landscape of Entrepreneurship Education for meaningful, real-world collaboration and problem-solving.
"At this point, it’s clear that entrepreneurship education, as it’s currently practiced, does not work," says Andrew Yang in his article critiquing Entrepreneurship Education.
We need to reimagine the current state of Entrepreneurship Education to be "action-based, not knowledge-based."
Yang continues by relating the study of Entrepreneurship to "an athletic endeavor, like serving a tennis ball. Telling you how to do it is useless. You actually get better through a combination of practice, coaching, and repetitions."
Along with the need for hands-on, real-world training, more students than ever are interested in starting their own businesses.
"With student interest in new business creation on the rise, the future for higher education is likely to be far brighter than it seems. Research shows that, in the heart of the pandemic, student interest in entrepreneurship education spiked. That trend proves what many of us already suspected: Crisis indeed fuels entrepreneurship."
This is according to the great article Entrepreneurship Is an Opportunity for Education By Timothy Mescon, Edwin van Rest.
Huddle Up is serving this need for quality, meaningful experiences for Entrepreneurship Education through better individual learning and collaborative decision-making. Learning - especially entrepreneurship learning - is not about remembering information; it's about putting that learning into action, and then learning from the ideas and feedback of others.
We're transforming entrepreneurship education, together.
