Teaching the Startup Mentality
Traditional education teaches students to learn predefined steps so they can add two numbers, analyze a poem, or bake a pie. This approach worked in an economy that depended on assembly lines and fixed corporate policies.
A new paradigm has emerged: the startup mindset. Successful entrepreneurs share a disregard of the status quo; a focus on possibilities; and a rejection of waterfall processes in favor of rapid iteration.
