An entrepreneurship course that can change the world
In the next 20 years humanity will change more than in the previous 300! Exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence, drones, robotics, 3D printing, VR, synthetic biology and quantum computing keep accelerating the speed of societal transformation and most of us aren’t prepared to navigate in this uncertain future.
Such radical changes might seem exciting, but they also represent an enormous challenge for society. Millions of jobs will be lost to automation and AI, and many young people will struggle when they graduate with degrees suited for job descriptions that no longer exist.
Darwin said that in times of change only those who collaborate and improvise will prevail – those are the exact skills of entrepreneurs and that’s exactly why it’s more important than ever before that we bring entrepreneurship courses into the classrooms around the world. We must teach future generations to be proactive and entrepreneurial in their lives and careers.
In his latest TEDx talk, Henrik Scheel argues that entrepreneurial skills are becoming increasingly important for all of us, and that all schools ought to give entrepreneurship education the same priority as other subjects. Through the Startup Experience course, Scheel has worked with a group of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to build a curriculum and course materials to be used both at the university and high school level.
