          We teach science to everyone, not just scientists, so why do we think that entrepreneurship education is only for entrepreneurs?  Entrepreneurial thinking can help us face the greatest challenges in our world today - poverty, climate change, AI.  We're on a mission to teach everyone entrepreneurship - primary school students, grad students, high school students and adult learners.
