Entrepreneurship in schools has the power to re-build & accelerate the economy

“Unemployment in Panama has grown by 25% and informal work has increased by 55% in 2020” – Forbes Centroamerica

Inspired by Nobel Peace Prize Winner Prof. Yunus ‘we are not seekers, we are job creators”,  the Academy of Entrepreneurs, Panamanian Embassy in Australia and the Panamanian Ministry of Education united their forces to transform 24,000 High School Students and Teachers into Entrepreneurs.

The Academy of Entrepreneurs built an exclusive program to empower the participants with the skills and network to turn problems into businesses that create an impact aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The classes were taught for 8 weeks 100% online and in Spanish followed by two weeks of pitch preparation and a Final Pitch on December 10th, 2020.

It was impressive to see how the Panamanian High School teachers were extremely engaged and participated week-by-week and used and integrated our extra curricular weekly activities into the school curriculum.

This program successfully contributed to the COVID-19 economic recovery and to foster Latin American – Australia connections via Entrepreneurship / online trade between Australia and Panama.

We would like to also thank the Deputy Minister of Education, Zonia Gallardo de Smith, the Deputy Minister of Multilateral Affairs and Cooperation Erika Mouynes, the Australian Ambassador to Mexico, attending in Panama, Remo Moretta and Ambassador of Panama in Australia, Marcelino Aviles for your collaboration.

We would also like to thank Miguel Mudbidri, International Trade expert and entrepreneur, and Andres Garzon, Business Growth Coach and Entrepreneur, for judging and mentoring in the Final Pitch Day!

And a super congratulation to  the winners Lorena González and Faryth Staley from the Colegio bilingüe María Auxiliadora, the co-founders of “Reciplas”, a plastic recycling startup that turns plastic bottles into bricks and used to build affordable, environmental friendly, and sustainable houses in 3 days and schools in 7 days.

“Our Mission has always been to accelerate social impact, so this is just the beginning.”

 – Paula Mills, CEO of the Academy of Entrepreneurs

We are extremely proud with the results and aim to expand this project in 100+ schools across Australia and the world.

Please contact us at info@aestudy.com so we can discuss how we can transform your students into “job creators, not job seekers” and create an impact in your school and community.

I recognised that I need to make my business as efficient as possible, so I wanted to learn about all the aspects of being an entrepreneur. Academy of Entrepreneurs have opened doors for me to network and have grown my business much quicker than I would have otherwise done.

It was an honor and a privilege to have Paula Mills as our ISIP Visiting Professor at the Technological Institute of the Philippines.  Her experience, as well as her passion and enthusiasm for social entrepreneurship and creating impact, were impressive and contagious.  Her lessons and insights on Social Entrepreneurship, Technopreneurship, Partnerships and Community, and Mentor Management were incredible and valuable. Thank you so much for generously sharing your time and expertise with us.

There is a lot of YouTube videos that give tips on marketing, finance, pitching to investors etc but there is no school program that teaches you how to build and run a company, how to behave in real life and boss your future. AE has helped me when I got stuck and gave me motivation and confidence to succeed

Academy of Entrepreneurs provided me the network and the tools to transform my ideas into a real business. They have an amazing team which is always in contact with me, helping me solve any problem that I could have. AE is also a very modern organization, because they use a lot of apps and tools that make the overall experience more efficient.

Academy of Entrepreneurs helped me with many things! They helped me to organise my ideas and establish a way to achieve my goals, step by step.

I also get  a lot of inspiration from entrepreneurs who speak during the Tuesday talks and also from the teachers and mentors during classes.
