The Design of Entrepreneurship Education

Dr Peter Kelly Professor of Practice, High Growth Entrepreneurship, Aalto University

Based in Finland since 1998, Peter has been the driving force behind entrepreneurship education at Aalto University heading up the Helsinki School of Creative Entrepreneurship, an initiative that involved all the Schools and the largest private donor to Aalto University. Before becoming Finland’s first Professor of Practice in High Growth Entrepreneurship, Dr Kelly spent time as Professor of Practice at the School of Art & Design where he developed a rapid opportunity prototyping course to explore the intersection between the disciplines of design and entrepreneurship

We are grateful that our partnership with Sydney School of Entrepreneurship has resulted in significant learning and teaching events and opportunities such as this.
