The Traditional Entrepreneur


This lesson will teach students what it means to be a traditional entrepreneur. Students will begin the lesson by taking on the role of a traditional entrepreneur and developing their own product or service. They will learn to define the concept of a traditional entrepreneur by reading and discussing the Knowledge@Wharton High School article: “The Rise of Tech Teentrepreneurs.” Next, students will work in groups to list the potential types of products and services that a traditional entrepreneur may offer. Finally, students will watch the Knowledge@Wharton High School video on: “Nat Turner: Young, Entrepreneurial, and Google-Owned,” and discuss how one young entrepreneur moved on from starting a business to being Google-owned.
