Since the coinage of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), there has been plethora of studies on the concept. The 4IR, otherwise referred to as Industry 4.0, is a nomenclature used by Klaus Schwab to describes the historical progression of technological advancement. The 4IR is principally the integration of the physical, digital, and industrial worlds. The testimonies of these advancements will result in self-driving cars, intelligent robots, autonomous drones, 3D printing, smart sensors, among several others. In fact, this is already a reality and is revolutionising our world. Given all these technological advances and unimaginable possibilities of the future, it is very sacrosanct to examine the role education will play in this era. What entrepreneurial skills will be required for the 4IR? How does entrepreneurial ecosystem position themselves to thrive in this era? This chapter explores those skills needed in the 4IR.
