Abstract: 
Educational initiatives such as Career Technical Education have stimulated entrepreneurship in China, Nigeria, and Brazil. Expanding Career Technical Education programs in the United States may reduce dropout rates costing over $300 billion in lost wages and increased public-sector expenses. This chapter focuses on innovative approaches to entrepreneurial education in three high schools in western United States. Using Neck and Greene’s “do then learn” method approach is promoting entrepreneurial success by creating effective industry/school relationships for implementation by social, economic, political, and academic thought leaders.
