Enterprise education is a means to inspire people to use initiative, resourcefulness and other enterprising skills in the very way they learn.
Did you know that start-ups and entrepreneurs are a large contributor to new jobs and innovation in Australia? In fact, start-ups created 1.44 million jobs in our economy between 2006 and 2011.
“To be a more innovative country we need to encourage an entrepreneurial mindset at every level of education – starting in schools, continuing in higher study and enduring throughout working lives.”
(Colin Kinner, Director of Spike Innovation)
