'Every bit as good as the beer itself.' Sir Richard Branson From selling the first cases of Cobra out of the back of a battered old Citroen 2CV along the streets of West London to exporting to over 40 countries around the world, Karan Bilimoria's vision of a less gassy beer has travelled a long way. Starting out with a heap of student debt, a complete lack of industry experience and parents desperate for their son to get a proper job, it could all so easily have gone wrong. But Karan's single-minded determination to succeed and his ability to inspire those around him to buy into his vision, turned Cobra, sip-by-sip, into the multi-million pound business it is today. Karan's story bottles the very essence of entrepreneurship: vision, drive, creativity and a relentless battle against all odds, to make the idea you so passionately believe in work. Against the Grain is packed with insights into finance, strategy, planning, luck, discipline, and generally doing the unexpected to build your own business, from someone who's been there and done it… and all with just a little less gas. 'Essential reading.' Richard Reed, Co-founder, Innocent Drinks 'An inspirational story.' Sir Martin Sorrell, Chief Executive Officer WPP 'Karan Bilimoria is one of the great entrepreneurs…' Jo Malone, founder of Jo Malone 'Inspiring! … worth the cover price for the «Financing Cobra» chapter alone.' Professor John Mullins, London Business School '… His story should inspire youth everywhere who are fired by the dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur.' Ratan Tata, Chairman, Tata Group

Исследования в области обучения предпринимательству продвигаются не так быстро, как по предпринимательству, потому что они не относятся к тому же уровню академической деятельности. Основываясь на программе исследований преподавания и изучения (the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning – SoTL) в сфере образования для взрослых и используя экспертный подход Дельфи, мы предлагаем ознакомиться со взглядами лучших преподавателей предпринимательства. Мы предполагаем, что познание процессов обучения предпринимательству через призму преподавания обеспечивает новые идеи и возвышает преподавание как форму академической работы наравне с традиционными, более принятыми формами исследования. В результате Дельфи-анализа было предложено определение обучения предпринимательству как развитие мышления, навыков и практики, необходимых для создания новых предприятий, но оговорено, что результаты такого обучения имеют далекоидущие последствия. Мы описываем пять континуумов обучения предпринимательству, которые стимулируют переход к педагогическим подходам, основанным на обучении взрослых, а именно на андрагогике и эвтагогике (хьютагогике). Также в статье обсуждаются последствия для подготовки преподавателей по предпринимательству, необходимость предпринимательской практики и будущее исследований в области обучения предпринимательству.

"From this lively and personal account, we learn that we can all practice inventorship to great advantage-measured either in gold or pleasure, or perhaps both!"-From the Foreword by Walter Cronkite «Inventorship is truly the stuff from which the future will be molded. Giving us an insight into the everyday thought processes of great inventive minds, Greene's wonderful collection of stories and ideas is a model for each of us in the art of inventiveness.»-Pat Hallberg, Executive Director, National Inventors Hall of Fame «This entertaining and well-written work educates without pain and motivates the reader to learn more. It should be widely read not only by business people and entrepreneurs, but by young people, their parents, and their teachers. The lesson: Inventorship is for everyone and can change lives for the better.»-Joseph N. Hankin, President, Westchester Community College «After all the scholarly books and articles about innovation and the entrepreneurial process by theorists, how refreshing it is to hear from a real live inventor holding hundreds of patents in fields as diverse as aeronautics, sailing, chess, and skiing! He has even invented a word, 'inventorship', to describe the process and guide us through dozens of examples. A very useful book.»-John Diebold, Chairman, The JD Consulting Group, Inc.
