In the new era, “Youth Maker” has become an important force that cannot be ignored in entrepreneurship. However, extant studies on the systematic research about Youth Makers’ education in universities are rare, especially the research on the cultivation model under the perspective of college students’ entrepreneurship. On the basis of needs analysis, this study conducts interviews on two types of entrepreneurial students and constructs a mathematical model by analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to systematically analyze related data. First, suggestions are proposed, including changing the current cultivation model, perfecting the entrepreneurship course by combining it with professional education, and strengthening platforms and project construction. Then, the suggestions are ranked according to importance. Finally, the “ecological chain” Youth Maker cultivation model is put forward to consistently build a four-year progressive system, construct a curriculum on profession-centered innovation and entrepreneurship, and establish a scientific and efficient incubator. This model can solve the weakness of the existing education model.
