WHAT IS THE ENTREPRENEURSHIP SCHOOL?

The Entrepreneurship School started in 2011 with one idea: that university

professors aren’t teaching students how to become successful entrepreneurs.


What’s missing?

There is not enough entrepreneurship education in Europe.

University education is too theory based, with students learning from professors

who don’t necessarily have the real life experience of what it takes to succeed.

When professionals are invited, they tend to be bankers, consultants and

managers, with most students wanting to follow their steps.


Our aim is to change this.

We believe that the most effective teachers and inspirers of entrepreneurship,

are actual entrepreneurs.

Our mission has been to actively engage students in a hands-on and interactive

school where students can develop their entrepreneurial skills.

 

This is why we created the first school without teachers.
