How to Launch a Startup in College
Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo all have one thing in common: they were college startups. Youth and great ideas can sometimes be the catalysts for industry-changing businesses. If you’re a budding entrepreneur, here are some important thought-provoking points to consider when thinking about launching a startup.
Step 1: Embrace Your Experience
Find something you’re passionate about creating, improving, or changing – use your experience to develop something that has meaning and provides a service.
Step 2: Gather Your Resources
Use the resources at your disposal to start your business. As a college student, professors who are highly skilled in their field are available to give advice and lead you in the right direction.
Step 3: Form a Built-in Network of Support
Depending on the service or product, your startup has a built-in network of potential customers and brand influencers that surround you. Consider joining various networking organizations to start forming those relationships early.
Step 4: Visit the Broward College Innovation Hub
The Innovation Hub is a one-stop shop business development center. This one-of-a-kind center houses a dynamic community of entrepreneurs, start-ups, mentors, advisors and investors, who all serve as a resource for business owners, innovators and committed individuals pursuing their entrepreneurial ambitions.
