Entrepreneurship and Innovation in a Revolutionary Educational Model: École, 42

Part of the International Studies in Entrepreneurship book series (ISEN, volume 36)


We live in a maelstrom of linear thoughts, believing that all the current standards or what has been previously established is how it should work. Ecole 42 (School 42 in English), with hanging towels in banisters, hundreds of computers, big rooms with luggage, and air mattresses on the floor everywhere would undoubtedly surprise and remove prejudice to more than one person. As of today, Millennials aren’t strictly aligned to the pre-established academic rules anymore, they are now developing their own academic methodology, marking history by working together with their classmates, which in a couple of years ahead, will not only be right with their innovative education model, but also will benchmark on how education could work in the twenty-first century.
