TheFuture.education Design Challenge empowers students to create a better future for all through entrepreneurial education. We define entrepreneurial education as the development of mindsets, skillsets, and agency that help all individuals, regardless of background, maximize their entrepreneurial potential, whether it be starting a new venture, going to work for an existing organization, or becoming an artist, activist and everything in between.
This open innovation challenge is for all learners around the world who want to design solutions that reduce barriers, increase access, and accelerate engagement in high-quality learning experiences that develop entrepreneurial mindsets, skills, and agency in ALL students.
Designing the Future of Entrepreneurial Education
FOR STUDENTS, BY STUDENTS

If you had a magic wand...
How might you reimagine the
future of education?
Why should you participate in TheFuture.education Design Challenge?
Many barriers within the current education system hold students back from reaching their full potential as entrepreneurial leaders.
Students report lack of access to entrepreneurial learning experiences, mentoring relationships, self-confidence, and opportunities to engage in real-world problem-solving as barriers to their success. As students prepare to take on new and daunting challenges, accelerated by technological and societal disruption, it is now more important than ever that we dismantle the barriers that hold students back and empower the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.
Increasing Access & Opportunity
Reducing barriers and increasing opportunities for students to access entrepreneurial learning experiences regardless of zip code, bank balance, age, race, ethnicity, major, education level, or gender.
Cultivating Entrepreneurial Leaders
Creating meaningful learning opportunities that cultivate entrepreneurial mindsets, skills, and agency in all students.
Accelerating Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Creating new opportunities, increasing support and resources for students who want to launch ventures.
