Student entrepreneurship is a great way for students to learn business skills and make money at the same time. These skills can lead to continued entrepreneurship and translate into success in the workplace. Since the invention of the internet it has been even easier for students to start and run businesses while attending school. Most colleges today have entrepreneurship programs and support for student entrepreneurs.
One of the most popular student businesses is retail sales. Students are aware of what the student body needs and is lacking and the business minded students often find a way to fill that gap. Cartisan now makes it even easier for student sellers to reach their audience, both locally at the school and elsewhere.
