What is an Edupreneur?

An Edupreneur is an educational entrepreneur who may design, plan, deliver, administer, open or operate educational services. They may teach, coach, facilitate, train, create, develop, publish, build, market, or share using their own knowledge, experience, and expertise in education as an invaluable primary resource.
