About

MoE is the first digital museum dedicated exclusively to entrepreneurship, which collects and displays stories from the entrepreneurs of our time. By sharing these tales of entrepreneurs from around the world, we aim to teach and inspire people in their own future endeavours. Our core focus is to reach out to young people from all walks of life, showing them that entrepreneurship does not belong to any specific gender, race, time or place; in truth, anyone can be an entrepreneur!

In this way, we hope to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurial spirits and help them choose the type of hero they want to become.

The Museum of Entrepreneurship brings together people from various backgrounds and diverse expertise but sharing the same dedication and passion for entrepreneurship.
