4 ways college entrepreneurship classes fall short

September 10, 2017View for printing

According to a Bentley University Survey, over 66 percent of millennials would like to start a company.

It's no wonder that colleges, universities, and private institutions are trying to ride the wave and offer entrepreneurship training classes, programs, and even degrees. In a recent feature in Forbes by Andrew Yang, the number of Entrepreneurship Education and Training Programs (EETs) has quadrupled over the past 25 years, and yet, rates of private business ownership for households under 30 have declined over 60 percent during the same period.

If millennials are so interested in starting companies, and if more training opportunities exist today than ever before, why aren't we seeing an increase in millennial startups?
