Entrepreneurship isn't a topic you learn by sitting in a classroom and listening to lectures. Entrepreneurship is a set of skills, abilities, knowledge, and attitudes that require occasional augmenting and updating. Many of my students return to my materials years after they've graduated from college to see what I've developed based on latest frameworks, ideas, and other insights from the leading edges of entrepreneurship. My logic for creating a game to build lateral thinking skills for children in Haiti was to help spark that lifelong approach to entrepreneurship to build entrepreneurial capacity in that nation.
