Entrepreneurship is attracting substantial attention from policy makers, educators and among the young people themselves as a driver of economic growth and innovations. In many ways, the march towards entrepreneurship is very much inspired by the likes of Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, and closer to home Jack Ma and other successful innovators. The questions often being asked are what made them so successful? Can we create more Steve Jobs and Jack Mas, and if yes, how can we do it? Notwithstanding the debate on nature vs. nurture, Peter Drucker said that entrepreneurship is a discipline, and like any discipline, it can be learned. The growing numbers of entrepreneurship education programmes and courses indicate that policy makers, educators and those future entrepreneurs agree with Drucker.

Clearly, many factors have to be considered and necessary conditions put in place to equip aspiring entrepreneurs with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes for their journey. To better understand these factors and conditions, and to provide recommendations for effective entrepreneurship education, UNESCO Bangkok has initiated a research study on the ecosystem needed to support entrepreneurship education in universities in 9 countries.

The study is an activity under the umbrella of UNESCO Bangkok’s project on Creating a New Generation of Entrepreneurs and Innovators with support from the Japan Funds-in-Trust. Researchers of the studies are members of the Entrepreneurship Education Network (EE-Net) – a network established by the project. To share their findings, UNESCO Bangkok organized the 4th UNESCO-APEID Meeting on Entrepreneurship Education on 12-14 October 2015 at Pullman Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition, mini-workshops were held to provide more hands-on sessions on selected themes based on the preliminary findings, e.g., mentoring, social entrepreneurship, women entrepreneurships and so on.

About 100 participants to include policy makers, educators, entrepreneurs, professionals and youth attended the meeting.
