The lecture will examine: Can you really teach people to become entrepreneurs or is it more or less a genetic matter whether or not people will start up ventures? And if the environment has a role, what kind of instruments do we have to promote more or better entrepreneurship? And what kind of skills and behavior are characteristic of (successful) entrepreneurs? So, what and how should (prospective) entrepreneurs learn?
Comments from: Bo Jansson, Chairman, Lärarnas Riksförbund
and Juanna S Joensen, Senior Research Associate, University of Chicago
and Roger Mörtvik, State Secretary to the Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training, Aida Hadzialic.
