What if entrepreneurship and business were taught with the same focus and passion that we teach academic study? It was a question that sparked an idea. There has never been a more exciting time in the world of business, with startups battling the more established brands and advances in tech creating whole new sectors to explore. But when it comes to learning how to be a successful entrepreneur or business person, courses focus on theory and academics instead of helping inspire that dynamism that disrupts the business world and creates great ideas.
EntrepreLearn is the knowledge hub that aims to change all that. We teach practical skills coupled with exciting gamified missions, ensuring knowledge is utilised rather than passively stored. We bring together visionaries from startups that have already made it to share their wisdom.
Founder & CEO – EntrepreLearn
I founded EnrepreLearn after experiencing my own frustrations when it came to building a career.
At the age of 16 I started on the path of entrepreneurship, inspired by a childhood living all over the world and time spent in the startup hub of Hong Kong. My first venture was the event management company KongKrete Jungle, created while I was still at school, and we booked artists ranging from Grandmaster Flash and Biggie Smalls’ DJ, to Adventure Club and Krewella.
I then studied at the University of Sydney and earned a BA, but when it came to advancing my education as an aspiring entrepreneur, I found that learning options were still too focused on the conventional route of a corporate career. Those places teaching anything to do with business and entrepreneurship lacked practical and compelling options and seemed so dry for such a fascinating topic.
So I decided to create the EntrepreLearn movement, a place where people could come together, study the best online business courses and learn, not just from teachers, but from successful founders.
