Entrepreneurs Create Educational Innovation
This chapter introduces the main topic of this book, which is how a number of entrepreneurs have identified and exploited opportunities in the tertiary education environment in Australia. Some of the comments of the entrepreneurs also shed light on why they made the decision to enter a sector which has been, until the last 20 years, predominantly a publicly funded sector.
