Technopreneurship is not a product but a process of synthesis in engineering the future of a person, an organization, a nation and the world.

This requires tertiary level and professional development programs and training to produce strategic thinkers who will have the skills to succeed in a dynamically changing global environment. Traditional educational programs, however,lack the methodology to transform today's students into creative,innovative, visionary global leaders who understand the importance of technopreneurship.
