Entrepreneurship is a significant driver of social welfare, economic prosperity, and environmental protection. Higher levels of opportunity-based entrepreneurial activity are essential for growth and progress.  To raise these levels, Joseph Schumpeter Entrepreneurship University (‘entreVersity’) is a social-media-driven university-level training institution that is re-imagining education for smartphone-enabled entrepreneurs, who often have little access to educational opportunities.

What is Joseph Schumpeter Entrepreneurship University?

entreVersity is named after Harvard professor Joseph Schumpeter, entrepreneurship’s first theorist, who  argued that the innovation and technological change come from the entrepreneurs, or wild spirits, who do completely new things or old things in a new way.[i]

Our educational services are based on an award-winning teaching approach already used by 39 Australian universities but until not available to entrepreneurs in the general public.

entreVersity brings together “star scholars” who (in part) have broken away from their universities and control their own IP. All the teaching materials have been tested for years in the classroom.

  1. Absolutely outstanding idea. All entrepreneurs need a different learning method. I believe that the classic way of teaching is inappropriate, entrepreneurs need to go out there, do market reasearch, talk to possible customers and practice being empathetic. Not the classic sit in the classroom and do tests.
