Edited by Jeremi Brewer and Stephen W. Gibson
Stephen and Bette Gibson founded the Academy for Creating Enterprise (the Academy) in Cebu, the Philippines in order to give local necessity entrepreneurs a chance to obtain an education on microenterprise. The Academy employs the “discovery learning,” or “guided learning,” methodology—the same methodology that Professor Clayton Christensen uses with his students at Harvard’s Business School. The Academy opened a second location in Mexico City in 2008 under the direction of Dr. Jeremi Brewer, Dr. Rebecca Brewer, and Mr. Gandhi Blas Pérez. Using the Gibsons’ curriculum and methodology, Academy Mexico has trained more than 4,100 individuals, and an estimated 500 new income generating activities have been created along with nearly 700 new jobs.
