The demands of the world continue to evolve and as we reverse-engineer what education needs to truly prepare students, we face the task of educating our children beyond book knowledge. From the two decades we’ve had in education, we believe it’s through entrepreneurship that we’ll grow the future’s trailblazers.
“Our schools have a doubly hard task, not just improving reading, writing, and arithmetic but entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity.” – Sir Ken Robinson, Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative
Imagine your children identifying opportunities, big or small, and solving problems by creating something truly creative and innovative of great value to people in the world. They’d work for themselves and not only would they not have to look for a job, they’d be the ones creating the jobs of the future being the entrepreneurial leaders of tomorrow.
At the same time, the entrepreneurial mindset isn’t all about starting businesses. It’s also how one approaches things like their job. For example, you have to choose between two candidates: John works hard to fulfill his job requirements, no more no less, while Peter who also works hard, thinks from the perspective of the business and goes the extra mile to ensure it always performs.
Between the two, who do you think you would value more in your organisation? Who would you work with? And most importantly, in which scenario would your children achieve greater success? At the end of the day, we want to empower students with choices so that they’ll always find success wherever they go and in whatever they do.
Entrepreneurship can mean different things to different people so our approach is defined by our 12 Pillars of Powerpreneurship, a culmination of our founders’ own entrepreneurial journeys:
