Seminar overview

Entrepreneurial education: From person to product to business

In this seminar, Professor Helle Neergaard will share her insight gained from the PACE project. PACE is an acronym for “Promoting A Culture of Entrepreneurship”. Taking as inspiration Kolb’s experiential learning cycle, the project developed a six-step teaching framework (the entrepreneurial learning cycle) that can be used in any entrepreneurial learning environment. Central components of the ELC are interventions and reflective logs that assist the learning process. A further essential element is the process students go through whilst learning to think more entrepreneurially, identify their resource wealth, understand the nature of opportunities, forging prototyping, realising and communicating their ideas – from person to product to business.
