An entrepreneur has to make countless strategic and operational decisions, with limited information, in a rapidly evolving environment, in a time-constrained manner. Sub-optimal decisions can lead to adverse outcomes. The traditional entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare the entrepreneur by providing information and tools without understanding the immediate needs of the entrepreneur.
