Be your own boss. An enticing dream that is achievable with honed business know-how. It’s a career journey that can actually start in school through programs that prepare learners for future entrepreneurial roles in a continually evolving workforce. In EVERFI’s edWebinar, “A Shark Tank State of Mind: Empowering an Entrepreneurial Mindset,” educators shared strategies for developing the capabilities and mindset students should embrace to become entrepreneurs.
This edWebinar will introduce activities and resources to help students hone their innovative thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and other entrepreneurial traits essential for success.
This edWebinar will introduce educators to FutureSmart, a digital resource for middle school students focusing on career exploration, money management, and entrepreneurship, provided across the nation by the MassMutual Foundation.
Individuals ages 20-34 comprise nearly 25% of the total new entrepreneurial activity in the United States. While many educational programs that support entrepreneurship focus on experience or simulations related to business, there are malleable skills that support student readiness for entrepreneurship that can be introduced and developed at the classroom level. Building from current research, Metiri Group has identified specific skills that are critical to developing a readiness for entrepreneurship in students.
