Chris Curtis recently returned from a trip to Portugal where he passed on knowledge and expertise on entrepreneurship to instructors, such as teachers who want to help their students, or municipal governments who want to help their citizens. 

Curtis explains what he did while he was on his trip.

"Helping organizations who want to help their members become entrepreneurs. We would help municipal government who want to help their citizens become entrepreneurs, we help school who want to teach students how to become entrepreneurs," he continues, telling us why he started this program.

"When I was working with the department of education in Nova Scotia, there was a downturn in the economy, and they wanted to have more entrepreneurs. We developed a curriculum to be taught in schools. At the end of the day, we had an interest from a lot of other places because it was very unique. The emphasis is learning by doing," Curtis also explains where he found some of his successes from this program.

"We had success stories for teachers at universities and schools. The successes for the teachers, you can see they have changed their teaching styles, they've actually developed whole programs in the schools around entrepreneurship," concluded Curtis.

He went on to explain that he has been doing this program since 1995 and that he loves doing this program.
