Universities have developed co-curricular programs to provide experience in the world of venture capital, such as the Venture Capital Investment Competition at the University of North Carolina.
There is also an explosion of community-based programs. One of the best know is the FastTrac program supported by the Kauffman Foundation. But there are also countless programs popping up like mushrooms after the rain all over the country. Many of these are supporting a critically important population of entrepreneurs: immigrants.

Others educate high school students about entrepreneurship and free enterprise, senior citizens, women, minorities, etc., etc., etc.
