Educating entrepreneurs

Is a subversive activity

For whoever will be the successor of the family fortunes, and will carry on the entrepreneurial ‘dream’, we have to strengthen their leadership qualities, courage, sincerity, independent thought, love for the business and for their men. We have to develop his sixth sense: intuition, and a seventh sense: the ‘dream’.

The entrepreneur knows that success is always a revolution. Because of this he is fundamentally a rebel capable of putting at stake his reputation and funds to modify reality, to break with pre-existing plans and equilibriums and create others than are more advantageous… Putting together other men, taking on the responsibility for them, transmitting enthusiasm to them, infecting them with your own dream, can all be called entrepreneurial characteristics… they are in fact qualities of the being… to access higher levels in the steps of human responsibility”.

An entrepreneur, behind the apparent search for an advantage, for a profit; much deeper than he himself can know, he is at the service of a project; he is already a man that does for other men; he knows that their betterment is his success. His life is dedicated. He has no choice. Like a captain on an ancient ship, he knows that he has to go back with the ship or sink with it”. He knows that only the ‘dream’ can make us free, overcome all our limits. Only the ‘dream’ can transform poverty into prosperity, difficulties into intelligence, fear into love.

To prepare these men we need free, international, practical, multicultural schools. In economics as in politics, we need to educate a new generation of business leaders, pragmatic dreamers capable of harmonising the apparent antagonisms that have always existed: economics and ethics, action and contemplation, financial power and love.
