Global Venture Lab Network Report

Berkeley, Calif. (PRWEB) August 2, 2010 — Today, the University of
California, Berkeley’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (CET)
released a report examining the state of technology entrepreneurship
education around the world.

The study encompasses the insights of approximately 20
entrepreneurship educators with engineering and technology backgrounds
who gathered for the inaugural symposium of the Global Venture Lab,
held during Global Entrepreneurship Week, November 2009. The
roundtable included leading educators from Stanford University; the
University of Michigan; the University of Texas, Austin; King Saud
University; the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur;
Tsinghua University; Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH); and
the University of Cambridge, among others.

This report reveals how ecosystems influence educational strategies,
why university systems designed to promote innovation can stifle it,
and why entrepreneurship education is no longer solely focused on
fostering as many student-led ventures as possible.
