In 2006, EntreEd and the Kauffman Foundation worked with the 109th Congress to designate the third week of February each year as National Entrepreneurship Week. We are proud that the movement continues today! National Entrepreneurship Week 2022 will take place from February 12-19. Monday, February 14th is Entrepreneurship Education Day. There is a multitude of ways for your school or classroom to engage in NatlEshipWeek. Plan to have an entrepreneur as a virtual guest speaker, highlight small businesses in your community, or deliver an entrepreneurship-focused lesson. We hope that you will find innovative ways to celebrate the week and the importance of entrepreneurship with your students!
On Entrepreneurship Education Day, we will be hosting a special webinar alongside NatlEshipWeek. Join us on Monday, February 14th at 3 p.m. EST as we host an exciting session with K-12 educators at the forefront of whole-school entrepreneurship education. Panelists will discuss how they have created a culture of entrepreneurship throughout their school and how this has sparked increased student motivation, engagement, and ownership of learning.
Panelists Dr. Amanda Jones, Principal of Barton Academy, and Dr. Tony Donen, Principal of STEM School Chattanooga, will talk with Dr. Toi Hershman, Vice President of Programming for EntreEd, about their journeys to create schools that have infused entrepreneurship for all students. They will share their personal stories of success and challenges and provide suggestions for schools and teachers who wish to begin an entrepreneurial shift in their schools.
NatlEshipWeek democratizes entrepreneurship and is dedicated to celebrating and uplifting the diverse voices of entrepreneurship across the United States. Its singular mission of increasing entrepreneurship in communities across the country culminates each year the third week of February and creates the entrepreneurial infrastructure to support new, aspiring, and seasoned entrepreneurs throughout the year. EntreEd is grateful to be the K-12 partner for NatlEshipWeek’s Entrepreneurship Education Day, involved in this thriving network, and to celebrate with organizations across the country on February 12-19, 2022. We invite you to join us and participate in the celebration! We would like to thank our partners NatlEshipWeek, Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, NACCE, NCRD, and The Edventure Group for your support to help EntreEd share K-12 entrepreneurship education with the workforce of tomorrow.
