Despite the growth in entrepreneurship programs, there remain cries for big changes to the way entrepreneurship education is designed, implemented and assessed. The faculty at Ryerson University have been active in conferences and publishing double-blind peer-review academic journal articles to address this critical issue and these are used to support the thoughts shared on this website.
At REI, Entrepreneurship is about far more than just starting a new business. It involves being alert to what IS and spotting opportunities for what MIGHT or OUGHT to be. It involves proactively bringing about this positive change in the world by TAKING ACTION! It’s about overcoming obstacles or inertia and creating value through experimentation, iteration and continuous LEARNING.
Entrepreneurship is foundational to the human spirit – it applies to new startups, intrapreneurship, social innovation, changemaking and personal empowerment.
