America’s New Business Plan: Access to Knowledge

Real World Experience for the workforce and to start a business

The fast-paced advancement of technology and the globalization of our businesses and economy require that our workforce and our future generations are well prepared to make or take a career. To have a prepared workforce and support entrepreneurs, we need to expand our education systems to include real-world learning experiences and hold systems and institutions accountable, preparing the next generation to be problem solvers and creators of change. Corporations and education systems need to work in concert to develop the pathways that make these experiences easier to find and inclusive of all students regardless of race, gender or geography. Finally, communities need to work at every level to democratize access to the connections and networks that build social capital.
