Translating entrepreneurship into the education setting – a case of societal entrepreneurship


Edward Elgar


In this chapter I view the translation process as a societal entrepreneurship process where both the external actors and the teachers can be regarded as societal entrepreneurs. The translation process of entrepreneurship education is boundary-crossing, involving the private, public and non-profi t/ voluntary (NPVO) sectors, with both external actors off ering diff erent programmes of entrepreneurship education for the purpose of solving societal problems and with teachers working to develop pedagogy being active in the process (see Chapter 1). Translating expresses societal entrepreneurship, as it involves long-term processes with the focus on developing society and societal change through the students during their stay at and after school.
