“Moving into the real world” used to be a standard phrase used as students prepared to leave the protected confines of the university and headed into the workforce. But as a student entrepreneur once told me as she was wrestling with balancing her new venture, class projects, final exams, and a college social life, “This Already Feels Pretty Real to Me!”
I have written before about the Entrepreneurial Generation now populating our classrooms and dormitories. We now have three student business hatcheries for these students, with over 50 students operating 40 businesses on our campus the competition for our space is beginning to heat up. And those are just the students we already know about! More come in almost every week.
- Tap into the entrepreneurial generation. If you hire them, give them as much entrepreneurial freedom as possible. Ask for and respect their ideas.
- Be a mentor. Help a college student transition their business out and into the market.
