Our definition of venture creation programs includes not just learning through the venture, but that the learners that are venture creating have the intention to incorporate. This emphasis aims to address the identity constrution process that occurs while enacting entrepreneurship. Learning through creating a new venture includes constructing a future self – the future identity of the entrepreneurial individual in the real venture. This helps to integrate the individual and team’s reasoning and learning around current issues and the influence, consequence and impact of decisions taken in the present. Intention to incorporate, including pre-emptive framing of collaboration agreements, customer contracts, etc. build entrepreneurial agency in the venture creation process – a factor lacking in many project-based or simluation-based educations.
