American Revolution 2.0. How Education Innovation is Going to Revitalize America and Transform the U.S. Economy

Welcome to Week 3: Entrepreneurship and Commercial Activity

Startup and entrepreneurial activity in higher education is rapidly growing. In particular, Silicon Valley has shifted its attention to education, with increased capital flow and VC funding supporting these startups. Commercial activity in the education sector is not new. Publishers, software vendors, for-profit institutions, and consultants have long contributed to the higher education ecosystem. 

This week, we will consider higher education commercial activity from both the perspective of what is enabled and what is threatened by this activity.
