  18. 18. What Did People Tell Us? [I’ve] never felt so vulnerable in a safe environment. Armageddon could be on the horizon and I know who I would choose to be in my bunker. Seriously. This experience confirmed [that] you don't have to wait to grow up and be something. You already are something. I saw the Matrix and I cannot go back to the pod again. I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I do know that I have control over it and I have value. I can contribute to a bigger part of this changing world because I connected with people who already are. My day job is lacking luster after being part of this and I wish the weekend would never end. What if [this] environment was where a person could work every day? Imagine the possibilities. I know I am.
  19. 19. Strategies to Try Leverage constraints Make it real Learn to hypothesize Learn to test Learn to fail Focus on process Use the tools Connect with mentors & professionals
  20. 20. What’s Next? Building & Fostering Responsive, Participatory Networks Using Entrepreneurial Thinking to Impact Educational Organizations Designing Effective Entrepreneurial Education for Students Opportunities for research: • What kinds of entrepreneurship are desirable across Alberta? • What kinds of entrepreneurship does the current curriculum support? • What does effective entrepreneurial learning look like? • Do something that supports entrepreneurial approaches in education (e.g. create an entrepreneurial curriculum)
