In my quest to understanding venture creation programs I am currently deep-diving into emotional aspects of entrepreneurship education. When do students get emotionally invested in their learning journey? My hypothesis so far is that it happens when real value is created, since that spurs a deeper sense of meaning beyond exams. Could be a venture, could be for charity, could be other types of economic or social value. So when we let students do real stuff that creates real value as part of a course or program, that is when the emotions start kicking in. What do you think? Do you agree?
