Teaching Teachers Entrepreneurship


Forty-seven professors and officials from 12 countries converged in April at Haas for two weeks of training on teaching entrepreneurship at the inaugural Technology Entrepreneurship Education Global Faculty Colloquium.


The colloquium was designed by the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation with assistance from the Center for Executive Development. It was part of the Intel + UC Berkeley Global Entrepreneurship Education Program, which aims to foster entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial activity around the world.


During the proceedings, attendees honed their teaching skills, learned how to create and run interdisciplinary entrepreneurship centers, and studied how to help other institutions build their entrepreneurship programs. They also immersed themselves in the Lester Center's entrepreneurship program, attended classes, and observed the UC Berkeley Business Plan Competition and other experiential learning activities.


All of the attendees were involved in active entrepreneurship programs across the globe, from Brazil to Russia.
