Description
Summary:Within the dynamically developing entrepreneurship education, creating and shaping entrepreneurship attitude is a special issue. In the last couple of years, ecopreneurs, ‘green’ entrepreneurs emerged among entrepreneurs. Ecopreneurs are identified as powerful tools in turning towards sustainable products and processes, and viewed as some kind of ‘remedies’ to many social and environmental problems. Sustainable businesses, in a narrow sense, are largely innovative start-up businesses that create environmentally and/or socially useful goods and services via responsible innovations. The attitude of social and environmental responsibility may be strengthened in entrepreneurship education, focusing on shaping such attitude, creating and strengthening commitment, and conveying the basic entrepreneur competences necessary for such responsible innovations.
