Promoting Economic Development through Entrepreneurship Training and Education. A Selection of Speeches from the Seminar (Hawaii, February 16-17, 1984).
The influence of entrepreneurship training and education on economic development is considered in four seminar papers. In "Profile of Hawaii's Economic Development Environment," Andrew J. Gerakas claims that there is no real thrust for growth in Hawaii. He mentions the importance of small business, venture capital and liberalized loan making. Samuel M. Slom's article, "Promoting Economic Development: A Business-Academic Imperative," considers the world business climate, attributes and skills of a successful entrepreneur, and entrepreneurial training. Secondary-school vocational education and some developments in Hawaii are considered by Frank Kanzaki in "Profile of Vocational Education in the DOE: Promoting Economic Development Through Entrepreneurship Education and Training." The following federal programs are briefly discussed: the Pre-Industrial Preparation Program, the Introduction to Vocations Program, and the Occupational Skills Program. In the final seminar paper, "Profile of Vocational Education in the Community Colleges," Joyce S. Tsunoda considers public, postsecondary vocational education and current and potential future developments relating to entrepreneurship. (SW)
