Entrepreneurship has been seen as a mystical phenomenon for many years. It has been a prevalent notion about success for talented and lucky people. The growing number of research confirms that education plays a significant role in fostering entrepreneurship and new attitudes to it. Recent measurements have mainly been oriented to education as fostering motivation for business-oriented entrepreneurship; moreover, growing attention is devoted to sustainability entrepreneurship. The article introduces the conceptual analysis of different education models and generated impact on entrepreneurial activities. The article also provides an interview-based research analysis about students and teachers’ early entrepreneurial intentions and activities. The present study confirms a significant need for entrepreneurial education in order to start, develop, and successfully realise innovative ideas.
