Can Entrepreneurship Be Taught?

Yes, Entrepreneurship Can, and Is, Being Taught, if by [tag]entrepreneurship [/tag]you are talking about what a person does as they start and build their business.

This is said by Jeff Cornwall who responded to an article in Fortune [tag]Small Business[/tag].
Jeff writes,

I believe there are two critical aspects of entrepreneurship education that increase success rates. First, we teach them what deals not to go into through the process of [tag]opportunity [/tag]assessment. We teach them how to “fail on paper.” They learn how to create discipline around their instincts and drive to move ahead blindly into the pursuit of their ideas. Second, we teach them about how to manage growth effectively. Any banker will tell you that this is where most businesses fail. We teach them about the challenges that success can create as their ventures grow. As one banker likes to say, “Too much success leads to failure.”

If you are an entrepreneur with a good idea you better had to read the article.
