Transcripts - NACCE Summit Miami-Dade Community College Keynote 11-18-13

  • 1. Entrepreneurship Education: Why It’s Good for Local Economies Dr. Doan Winkel Illinois State University (Professor) NACCE (Fellow) USASBE (Senior VP Programming) Coleman Foundation (Fellow) internrocket (Co-Founder)
  • 2. Entrepreneur (general definition) Someone who perceives an opportunity and creates and grows an organization to pursue it
  • 3. My Focus Entrepreneur is someone with a certain mindset, who thinks a certain way
  • 4. The Ecosystem • How do we build it? – Generational approach (few Band-Aids) – Diversity (creatives, analytics, managers) – Small victories • Who builds it? – The entrepreneurs (see Brad Feld’s Startup Communities book)
  • 5. Why Build Ecosystem? • Long-term economic and social impact • Find & develop tomorrow’s entrepreneurs
  • 6. Benefits to Local Economy • People want to live here • People here engage in meaningful work • People pursue their passions here • Recruiting/attracting business is insufficient – Must support entrepreneurship
  • 7. The Ecosystem Matters • Specific data is irrelevant (data can be manipulated to follow an agenda) – US Bureau Labor Statistics, Kauffman Foundation, Edward Lowe Foundation • Aggregate data shows entrepreneurs & small businesses create huge value for local economies (job creation, wealth creation, etc)
  • 8. The Ecosystem Matters • Chamber of Commerce, economic development org, Mayor/town, university, community college don’t create value – (they support the value creation . . . if they’re forward thinking!) • The entrepreneurs create and deliver the value
  • 9. Entrepreneurial Continuum • “From Kindergarten to Career” (© H. Leigh Toney) • Experiential programs – Lemonade Day, TLS, NFTE, Junior Achievement – Lean Launchpad, Startup Weekend, Lean Startup Machine, Ice House, Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour • All are different flavors of the same general approach: learn some, do some, reflect some, iterate, repeat
  • 10. Entrepreneurial Continuum • Dealing with educational institutions is disastrous – Absurdly slow & conservative • Start in the community – Offer experiential learning opportunity to all – Be inclusive
  • 11. Educators’ Role • Must innovate in the classroom • Lecturing does not work – Can substitute social learning (“watering hole”) – Can substitute reflective learning (“cave”) – Should substitute experimenting (“life”) • Don’t just model the real word, create it
  • 12. How Do Educators Innovate in the Classroom?
  • 13. Entrepreneur (general definition) Someone who perceives an opportunity and creates and grows an organization to pursue it
  • 14. My Focus Entrepreneur is someone with a certain mindset, who thinks a certain way
  • 15. Key Components of Classroom • Rationale • Orientation (orienting students to course) • Expectations • Goals/objectives • Syllabus • Calendar • Content (choice of content & of delivery) • Discussion • Assignments • Formative assessment (are they learning?) • Summative assessment (exams) • Evaluation (of self, of teacher, of course) • Grading • Mentoring
