Resource description

University students in China were given 1,000 RMB ($146, €112) each and told to turn their ideas into reality: ‘go into the streets, market the products and build something.’ A year later, most of them had something to show for their efforts. As soon as they left school, they were in business. “We also see this culture of entrepreneurship in places like India and the US, but we don’t see it in Europe. This has to change,” says Martin Schuurmans, chairman of the governing board of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). “I do not believe entrepreneurship is in the genes - I believe we can do a lot to build young people into entrepreneurs.”
