Entrepreneurship Education Conference (EEC)

On 8 & 9 April, 2021, the InfoEdge Centre for Entrepreneurship hosted the Entrepreneurship Education Conference (EEC 2021).

Entrepreneurial Education has so far primarily been viewed as a major engine for economic growth and job creation along with a response to the increasingly globalized & complex world we live in, requiring all people and organizations in society to be equipped with entrepreneurial skills.

A much less discussed but highly interesting impact that entrepreneurship can have on education is the high levels of student motivation and engagement it can trigger, and also the resulting deep learning. Those students that pick up strong interest and aptitude for value creation can then continue with elective courses and programs focusing on how to organize value creation processes by building new organizations as well as taking on important societal challenges with an entrepreneurial approach.

The Entrepreneurship Education Conference (EEC 2021) brought together some of the brightest minds for keynotes, panel discussions, and expert sessions on 8 & 9 April, 2021. 

With 1k+ registrations, the conference aimed at sparking conversations around themes like:
