World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Learners by Youg Zhao

What Makes an Entrepreneur

  • They are dissatisfied with an existing condition. Common qualities are inspiration, creativity, direct action, courage, fortitude, alertness to opportunities, foresight, ambition, passion, confidence, innovation, risk tolerance, a social network, and persistence. The entrepreneur needs fortitude or perseverance to see their solution to fruition. Studies indicate that entrepreneurship is partially due to one’s genetic makeup. A person may have a strong inclination for entrepreneurship, but if one is not given the opportunity to learn or in worse cases, if it is forbidden, the person’s entrepreneurial talent cannot be developed. Governments and local cultures can also encourage or impede the entrepreneurial sprit. While entrepreneurship courses are exploding, there is little research on their effectiveness. It is not enough to add entrepreneurship on the perimeter—it needs to be at the core of the way education operates.
