Help for high school entrepreneurs

By Lauren Winfrey
There are many resources for aspiring young entrepreneurs. Here are just a few places you can begin.
  • Start where you are: Many high schools have Junior Achievement, DECA and other programs, so check with your counselor about these and other opportunities in your community.
  • Colleges, universities and technical schools can help: Many have implemented student startup accelerators like the one at Colorado State University. See what’s available in your area.
  • With the 20 Under 20 Thiel Fellowships, students “pursue innovative scientific and technical projects, learn entrepreneurship from the ground up, and begin to build the innovative companies of tomorrow.”
  •  The National Federation of Independent Business’ Young Entrepreneur Foundation “promotes entrepreneurship through scholarship programs, classroom games and teacher and student programs.”
