Exploration of best practices and current entrepreneurship operations and policies of the public workforce investment system, including information on how Workforce Investment Boards and One-Stop Career Centers currently provide support for developing entrepreneurs and gig/sharing economy workers.

"The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education analyzed current entrepreneurship operations and policies in the public workforce investment system, and collected information on ways Workforce Investment Boards and One-Stop Career Centers [now known as America's Job Centers] currently provide support for developing entrepreneurs. Utilizing this information, the Consortium developed an online clearinghouse and this report to broadly share best practices on entrepreneurship activities within the workforce investment.

Specifically, the report encourages the workforce investment system to make entrepreneurial/self-employment training opportunities available for people interested in self-employment under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. The report includes recommendations for dissemination opportunities for clarifying ETA entrepreneurship policies, examples of what the field is doing in the area of entrepreneurship, and provides descriptions of how to implement entrepreneurship training strategies."
