Students as Global Entrepreneurs is a radically different education philosophy. It aims to cultivate self-regulated, responsible, and creative individuals who are capable of creating their jobs or positions instead of shaping themselves to fit in. It starts with the natural curiosity of children and supports them to develop their strengths and preserve their motivation for learning. It encourages families, schools, and communities to build on their uniqueness instead of trying to become more like others. It helps individuals and communities to view others as potential collaborators, clients and customers, and markets for their uniqueness instead of competitors. This approach does not ignore the basics or common knowledge required to be competent citizens but teaches them in a different way. Instead of imposing on them, this approach inspires children to actively seek them.
