ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION IN GREENLAND
Greenlanders’ aspirations to diversify their economy and generate new opportunities for all Greenlanders will require a young and dynamic workforce prepared to start and build new businesses across all sectors of Greenland’s growing economy.
At the request of and in partnership with the people of Greenland, USAID is working with Fonden for Entreprenørskab - Kalaallit Nunaanni branch of the Foundation for Entrepreneurship to foster the next generation of Greenlandic entrepreneurs.
This initiative will support Greenland's efforts to build a workforce of young people equipped with the skills needed to fulfill Greenland's economic potential. USAID's support will accelerate the work that FFE began in 2017 with the Government of Greenland to reach students across Greenland in both primary and secondary schools. The connections FFE has built across Greenland's education system will be invaluable to ensuring USAID's catalytic investment endures.
The initiative will:
Train teachers and provide them with the tools to deliver entrepreneurship education at both the primary and secondary level.
Develop and run entrepreneurship programs, competitions and events for teachers and students at local and national levels.
Set up a network of mentors, role models and business contacts to support entrepreneurial learning and action in Greenland.
