Online workshop: Crafting spaces for entrepreneurial learning
September 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC+2

Considering the significance of innovation and creativity in entrepreneurship, crafting spaces that inspire students is something that universities have rightly started to prioritise. But what really makes a space inspiring? How can physical environments be conducive to new ideas?

The objective of this online workshop is to investigate the factors that contribute to the innovativeness of a space and discover how that space encourages entrepreneurial activity. Elusive as they may be, these factors have been studied and this workshop, led by Luke Pittaway, will uncover the most relevant research findings and methodologies on understanding and harnessing their influence.

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Gain insights into how physical infrastructure actively contributes to fostering innovation and driving entrepreneurial outcomes
  • Focus on the different forms and types of spaces that have been developed within the United States and examine the roles they play
  • Explore a step by step guide for assessing and designing new physical infrastructure for entrepreneurship on university campuses


Dr. Pittaway is the Copeland Professor of Entrepreneurship at Ohio University and a Justin G. Longenecker Fellow at USASBE. His research focuses on entrepreneurship education and learning and he has a range of other interests, including entrepreneurial behavior, networking, entrepreneurial failure, business growth, and corporate venturing. In 2018, Dr. Pittaway was nominated and selected to be USASBE’s Entrepreneurship Educator of the Year.


The workshop is open free-of-charge to educators from all universities and disciplines. Due to the interactive nature of the workshop there is a limited number of spots available. In order to secure a seat, please register by September 13th, 2023 HERE

ECSB is co-branding the event.
