“I founded Draper University in 2012 with a vision and belief that in order to change the world we have to change education. Draper University aims to teach entrepreneurship globally in an entirely new way. I’m thrilled that, with Richmond, The American International University in London, we can share our approach with students of this new MBA in Entrepreneurship.” – Tim Draper, American venture capitalist
