Vision & Mission
NPE's vision is to assist children to develop into community-minded entrepreneurs. At NPE, we offer a wide range of enrichment programs to support children's development in essential skills so they will be future ready. With the community in mind, NPE partners with many communities and commercial organisations to provide project-based learning (PBL) opportunities for young entrepreneurs to support the community while honing their skills.
In our ever-changing world, change is the only constant. According to the Realizing 2030 report from Dell Technologies in 2017, the Institute For The Future (IFTF) forecast that 85 percent of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet. So how can we equip future generations with skills and mindsets to include the cultural, social, economic, and environmental principles they need to tackle 21st-century challenges?
Entrepreneurial Mindset and Skills
Dr Robert Hisrich at Kent State University described an entrepreneur as "someone who demonstrates initiative and creative thinking and can organise social and economic mechanisms to turn resources and opportunities to solve problems and accepts risk and failure." An entrepreneurial mindset consists of traits such as:
Creativity and innovation
Critical thinking and problem solving
Communication and collaboration
Comfort with risk
Flexibility and adaptability
Initiative and self -reliance
These abilities represent the unique contribution that successful entrepreneurs can make to their community. The person with an entrepreneurial mindset thrives on challenges and is able to create solutions through innovation and change.
Research shows that the period between ages 9 and 12 is one of the most significant developmental stages in children regarding their attitudes, values and perceptions of themselves and their world. An entrepreneurial mindset nurtured at an early stage has the potential to become an essential learning tool.
At NPE, we are thrilled to partner with several innovative organisations that have developed excellent entrepreneurship programs for children and youth. Our aim is to empower students by means of entrepreneurial competencies so they will thrive and be able to deal with challenges and uncertainties, and to contribute to society through innovative value creation.
