What Have We Learned Creating 2000 Startups?

We want to share our experience in changing our university education guidelines to a more entrepreneur-driven model. As "the best way of learning about anything is by doing", we switched our model: all students now must develop a startups as a way of integrating what they learn with a real world problem. Throughout this journey, in the last years 2000 startups were developed - and what have we learned? From entrepreneurship education to entrepreneurial education models.
