Abstract

The Science and Technology Policy Institute (STPI) looked into the state of entrepreneurship education in the United States to assess if a greater Federal Government role might improve entrepreneurship education and thereby increase entrepreneurs’ chances of success. STPI explored the following questions regarding entrepreneurship education:

• What is the current landscape? • What specific goals could be embraced? • What specific policy measures are proposed to achieve those goals? • What collaborations across the government and other sectors would facilitate meeting these goals?

Our approach to answering these questions was to (1) delineate the importance of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education to the United States (Chapter 2); (2) describe the present state of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education in the United States, including types of programs, goals, approaches, and stakeholders (Chapter 3); and (3) identify and examine the areas of entrepreneurship education that might benefit from Federal Government attention (Chapter 4).

Keywords: entrepreneurship, education, federal, policy
