Fostering Educational Entrepreneurship: 

Backdrop: 

In a few years,human teachers may be replaced by intelligent automation. See “ When Teachers were human” ( https://lnkd.in/ee3_H2uU). Progressive Educators will then evolve to become entrepreneurs. You might not think there’s much the classroom can teach you about the boardroom. But, according to Jack Ma, co-founder and executive chairman of Alibaba, starting out his career as a teacher is what made him into a world-renowned businessman.

Educational entrepreneurs will lead to economic empowerment of a large population.  Else there is a real danger of them falling into the ‘useless class’ as projected by Yuval Noah Harari: https://lnkd.in/eDPSmbf
