Entrepreneurship education

NYT has an article that discusses how entrepreneurship is becoming popular at US universities.

Today’s students have grown up hearing more about Bill Gates than F.D.R., and they live in a world where startling innovations are commonplace. The current crop of 18-year-olds, after all, were 8 when Google was founded by two students at Stanford; Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in 2004 while he was at Harvard and they were entering high school. Having “grown up digital” (to borrow the title of Don Tapscott’s recent book on the Net Generation), they are impatient to get on with life.

And these people are creative. I see that with my students in the entrepreneurship class that I teach and I see that among many young people all around me. This is exciting.
