    Daniel Margolis wrote Why Entrepreneurship Should Be Included in Higher Education

    Daniel wrote: In a scene in the 2010 movie “The Social Network,” Larry Summers, then president of Harvard University, tells two students, “Everyone at Harvard is inventing something. Harvard undergraduates believe that inventing a job is better than finding a job.”

    According to Greene, every school should have its own definition of what entrepreneurship means to it and build from there. Greene herself defines entrepreneurship as a mindset and skill set that looks at opportunities, identifies resources and uses leadership to combine these elements and create something of value.

    Also, very relevant is the following:
    Irving Wladawsky-Berger wrote Job Creation and Entrepreneurship

    Irving wrote: I have seen first hand the pain and frustration caused by prolonged unemployment through my involvement with JumpStart NYC at SUNY’s Levin Institute. The JumpStart program aims to help city residents who have lost their job in Wall Street and other industries explore new career opportunities in small, entrepreneurial firms in the New York area. Many of the participants in the program have been out of work for over a year.
