Summary Asia-Pacific countries have huge numbers of young entrepreneurs. Yet the state of entrepreneurship education in this region has yet to come to grips with their needs. Elsewhere in the world, the growth and development in the curricula, textbooks, Websites and degree programs devoted to raising the level of enterprise and new venture creation has been remarkable.

The researcher undertook field study to examine best-practice models of enterprise education. He then carried out a content analysis of leading entrepreneurship textbooks to examine their applicability to the Asia-Pacific circumstance. Working with Thomson Learning Australia, he acquired the rights to re-write one leading textbook and entirely “asianised” it. He also produced a highly interactive Website to attract Internetnet savvy young entrepreneurs and students in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.

The paper offers generalization that may prove helpful to educationalists and government policy planners about how to increase the supply of young people who launch their own businesses and social enterprises. The goal of this paper is to help universities in our region move toward launching entrepreneurship education in a relevant and interesting way.
