Betting for entrepreneurs through training and learning

In my last post I talked to you about the characteristics of entrepreneursOn this one I want to emphasize one of them: the one related to constant learning. The point is that last week, the 10th of October, I had the honor of participating again in the DeustoSTART program, a program whose goal is to contribute to the developing of entrepreneurship among the students from the last courses of the degrees of the University of Deusto.

And you, what do you want to be when you grow up?

I’ve been keeping the video that I want to share with you for a long time. It’s a video that starts out with a simple question which for some is not easy to answer:

What do you want to be when you grow up?

The video is about education, creativity, learning, freedom, innovation, hackers, school, personal interests, motivation, risks, emotion, opportunities and self-discovery, among others. All of that from the thoughts of a ten-year-old boy.

Some of you might think that this has nothing to do with entrepreneurship. On the contrary, I think it has a lot in common with starting new actions, new paths, new projects and new challenges. It is also linked to many of the values assigned to the entrepreneur and to the education of future generations.

Here you have it. I hope you like it.

I wish you happy summer holidays.

Being kidpreneurs

Why? What is that? What does it say? Or why not? These are some of the questions most parents (I include myself among those) have or have had to answer many times a day to our children during their first years of life. Why do these questions change or disappear when they (we) start getting old? Moreover, why do some of us have to use the extracurricular programs to “give back” to our children their own attitudes and skills?

Today, I would like to focus on the education of the entrepreneurial competence of our children and think out loud. (more…)
