The Foundation for Entrepreneurship – Young Enterprise works to ensure that the ability to be innovative becomes a fundamental element in all educations from primary school to PhD. Innovation and entrepreneurship must to a higher degree be integrated in the educations and become deeply rooted at the educational institutions.
The Foundation for Entrepreneurship – Young Entreprise works as a knowledge centre to diffuse and communicate results from research about entrepreneurship teaching. Through surveys and analyses the Foundation also helps generate new knowledge about the spreading and impact of entrepreneurship education in Denmark.
In 2012 the strategy was replaced by a new innovation strategy ‘Denmark – a nation of solutions’ which has a set goal for the innovation capacity of educations – a goal which the Foundation contributes to reaching.
The Foundation for Entrepreneurship – Young Entreprise was established within the frames of the former Selvstændighedsfonden and has sustained its membership of the international organisation Junior Achievement – Young Enterprise. Young Enterprise is a non-profit organisation with the purpose of strengthening young people’s competences in self-employment, innovation and entrepreneurship.
