Critical Acclaim
‘Is the tide finally turning for entrepreneurship education? Toward embracing the best of what we know about human learning? If so, Kat, Col and Andy are our Archimedes lever! I, for one, am deeply grateful. Creativity and design should go hand in glove with entrepreneurship but the dots didn’t really get connected… until they showed up and showed out. I read anything they do... and can you tell just how envious I am of this volume?’
– Norris Krueger, QREC, Kyushu University, Japan

‘If you bring together some of the leading thinkers in entrepreneurship education this is the book you get. An outstanding set of chapters examining graduate entrepreneurs, underlying ideation processes, and the venturing journey. This is more than just a book; it is a statement about the future of entrepreneurship education.’
– Luke Pittaway, Ohio University, US
