Connect is a partnership of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship and the Pearson Foundation. It is designed to help educators who want to teach entrepreneurship and success in their classrooms. Whether you are beginning with entrepreneurship education or already have experience with it, you will find resources, guidelines and professional development opportunities on this site that will help you teach your students to plan for success.
Entrepreneurship education takes the principles of business, the process of identifying and realizing opportunities for success, and uses them to motivate young people. By placing education in the context of real-world problems and rewards, entrepreneurship education helps students see the relevance of school to their own personal goals and achievement.

Entrepreneurship education is a fun and exciting way to make core subjects like Math, English and Social Studies relevant to students’ everyday lives. You can easily integrate this approach into any in-school or out-of-school program.
