|About Entrepreneurship Week in Maine |
The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education has challenged their extensive
networks to join with entrepreneurs and economic developers in sponsoring
events at the local, state, and national levels during this special week. As an
advocate for entrepreneurial education as a lifelong learning process they are
reaching out to educational leadership nationwide to support entrepreneurship
education programs and activities that prepare our youth and adults for careers
in the 21st Century.
A Maine State Leadership Team has been formed to build collaboration in
support of Maine's entrepreneurial culture. Entrepreneurship is a driving force
of the U.S. economy. For several years, businesses less than five years old
have accounted for about 70 percent of the net job creation in the United States.
However, while America presently maintains the edge as an entrepreneurial
society, there are clear signs of massive economic competition from abroad.
More Americans in the future will need to be generating more ideas and better
innovations if the United States is to stay ahead of the large populations of
educated citizens in emerging and globally savvy economies.
