On 16 September Mirjam van Praag will give the 2015 Swedish Schumpeter Lecture under the heading: The Potential of Fostering More (Schumpeterian) Entrepreneurship. The lecture will examine: Can you really teach people to become entrepreneurs or is it more or less a genetic matter whether or not people will start up ventures? And if the environment has a role, what kind of instruments do we have to promote more or better entrepreneurship? And what kind of skills and behavior are characteristic of (successful) entrepreneurs? So, what and how should (prospective) entrepreneurs learn?
