“Frontiers of Entrepreneurship: Raise the Bar” is an event focused on entrepreneurship education …

  • the process by which we teach it to students
  • the ecosystems we aim to help foster, grow, and service; and
  • the future of how the next generation of students learn to become resilient entrepreneurs and create impact in the world.

Join us for an intimate and engaged two days of sessions with your fellow academics and administrators who teach entrepreneurship courses or help run entrepreneurship centers. It doesn’t matter the stage or sophistication of your school’s offerings in this area, this event aims to gather those who are looking to teach entrepreneurship to their students using the latest concepts and offerings.

  • Learn how different schools are teaching their students
  • Become a member of our network of like-minded educators
  • Create rigor and standardized methods of the concepts around entrepreneurship
  • Share ideas and knowledge for best practices
  • Experience the MIT entrepreneurship ecosystem first-hand

This is an in-person event built specifically for entrepreneurship educators who want to take advantage of co-learning opportunities and improving the curriculum. Don’t miss out on your chance to play a role in creating these frontiers in entrepreneurship education and help to raise the bar in our field!
