BEITI Project: The Teaching of Entrepreneurship at Grade Schools

Paul Asamoah


This paper proposes the teaching of entrepreneurship at grade schools for improvement in the economy of countries, strong empowerment of the critical age group youth and young adults for competitiveness in all aspects of creative pursuits for several years to come. The outlined program is entitled Business, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation Teaching Interface (BEITI), and it aims to teach the basic didactics in entrepreneurship and build on it the possible business and economic implications of the didactics; in addition teach it early as well as deliver the concepts using fun and creative technology applications most individuals are already comfortable with. The Proposal framework is built on Schumpeter’s 1934 advocate that entrepreneurship plays a great role in economic development. This is because entrepreneurs are able to innovate in order to transform commercial products through processes that add economic value. According to Acs et al (2004), that transformation is only made possible when entrepreneurship plays the role of "knowledge filter". Particularly where it is made an integral component of the curricula in schools, it tends to produce leaders in societies that have business knowledge (Nelson & Johnson, 1997).

Keywords: Entrepreneurship Teaching, Creativity, Innovation, BEITI Project, Economic Growth.
