It’s no wonder that colleges, universities, and private institutions are trying to ride the wave and offer entrepreneurship training classes, programs, and even degrees.

In a recent feature in Forbes by Andrew Yang, the number of Entrepreneurship Education and Training Programs (EETs) has quadrupled over the past 25 years, and yet, rates of private business ownership for households under 30 have declined over 60 percent during the same period.
