In order to foster the culture of entrepreneurship, the students need to be groomed accordingly. Here, the academic institutions/colleges can create 'the innovation and incubation centres.' The members could be the representatives of industry, government, banking system, lawyers, social activists, women etc. who can guide from their domain. The LT&OD consultants are one of them. I work at this level in India. Thanks.

Hello, Mr! In our country introduced a course of entrepreneurship. To do this, at the beginning, teachers were trained. A few months later, teachers began to educate students. This course encourages you to open your business in the future. Atameken Corporation promotes youth to open their own business.

Build upon new venture ideas that the students generate and reward them as much for discovering that an idea would not work at present as for an idea that would.

A didactic method is to apply the lean canvas method, to study the business idea, before developing the specific business plan.

Dear Colleague
I personally believe that a great boost to efficient teaching on entrepreneurship is given by the hands on approach
Students need to experience all the complexities and components of being an entrepreneur directly. This is particularly true of the aspects related to soft skills that are hardly addressed in traditional study courses.
As other colleagues have suggested, I agree that the possibility of sending professionals and entrepreneurs can give a great stimulus for inspiration

Dear Colleagues and Friends from RG,
The above question inspired me to propose reflections and inspire discussions on the following issues:
Entrepreneurship and innovation in the field of teaching classes conducted in the formula of entrepreneurship incubator.
In recent years, the importance of technology, innovation and information as important production factors in modern emerging economies is growing, more and more new micro-enterprises and startups are using new information technologies ICT, Industry 4.0 and others. Technological companies and innovative startups constitute in the economically developed countries a significant branch of the entire host and generate an increasing share in the manufactured Gross Domestic Product. Therefore, the importance of activating entrepreneurship is growing, which is especially important during periods of economic slowdown, and thus also for 2020 and subsequent years. One of the important areas of entrepreneurship and innovation activation is teaching entrepreneurship and innovation in schools and colleges. A lot of ideas have already been created for effective teaching and improvement of entrepreneurship and innovation skills of pupils and students. In some concepts, the establishment of entrepreneurship and innovation incubators that work in close correlation with taught classes or are fully integrated with these classes is indicated as the most effective methods of teaching and improving students 'and students' skills in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
Please reply.
I invite you to discussion and scientific cooperation.
Thank you very much.
Best wishes.

The innovation in universities is linked to the pattern of economic and social development and clarity of a strategy for innovation in order to build the nation and the Renaissance project. Innovation in university education and building the concept of the National Research University is based on a number of basic elements represented in developing a national vision for scientific and technical excellence, government policies that stimulate investment in applied research, attention to vocational and university education, and a focus on education, research and local needs in the industry and technical sector.

Focus more on practicality and/or realistic hands-on business ideas/scenarios/examples. Sometimes business or entrepreneurship education can be too theorethical with poor/weak applicability to reality. Also, whilst it is good to look at other countries/international business, however it should primarily focus on local examples relevant to the context of the country or area as each context is different and can have different impact on entrepreneurship.

Have you looked at examples such Gerard Adam's Fownders (www.fownders.com). Universities need to look at what value they are adding to the community. It isn't about what knowledge you are going to impart on students (as empty vessels) but rather what relationships can be build with the experiences that a particular student brings to the table. We have billions of people that have ideas; therefore, the biggest hurdle isn't a lack of ideas but rather a lack of action. Universities need to focus on creating the space for action to take place by the innovators and entrepreneurs that walk through the door. Who gets the mentor? Who receives the opportunity?
Hope this helps.
