Exploring the Concept of an Entrepreneurship Education Ecosystem

Candida G. Brush

A chapter in Innovative Pathways for University Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century, 2014, vol. 24, pp 25-39 from Emerald Publishing Ltd

Abstract: Abstract This chapter explores the concept of an entrepreneurship education ecosystem. The concept of ecosystem comes from the natural sciences, but is increasingly applied to regional development, or clusters, which focus on firm inter-organizational relationships. Building on the idea of the university is a key player in a local entrepreneurship ecosystem, this chapter provides a framework for examining a school’s role in this process. A typology is presented that articulates roles that schools may pursue in developing their own internal entrepreneurship education ecosystem.
