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.
  • http://www.thielfellowship.org/: 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.”
  • http://www.nfib.com/foundations/yef/:  The National Federation of Independent Business’ Young Entrepreneur Foundation “promotes entrepreneurship through scholarship programs, classroom games and teacher and student programs.”

Prepared for life after high school?

Tell us where you believe you are:

I am 100% certain what I will be doing right after high school
I pretty well have it figured out but am open to ideas
I am just starting the process but have a way to go
I am completely lost and have no idea on what's next after high school
