Young entrepreneurs can find good help without leaving campus.

“Young entrepreneurs can find good help without leaving campus.”  Quote from New York Times article “Got the Next Great Idea?” explains how some universities are increasingly providing entrepreneurial value to match what they might find if the same students headed to Silicon Valley.  Brigham Young University’s Rollins Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology is in that category.  As of October 2012 BYU’s Rollins Center was

ranked #3 in the nation for entrepreneurship graduate programs, and

ranked #6 in the nation for entrepreneurship undergraduate programs.

““It’s possible for a 20-year-old to create something that changes the world,” says Bryce C. Pilz, a University of Michigan law professor who works with student start-ups.  That’s revolutionary thinking for a university culture that has long focused on the inventions of graduate students and faculty. But campuses are beginning to put their bets on undergraduates. Who better understands the social media mindset? And what campus wouldn’t want an Instagram founder as an alum?”

  1. I think colleges are a huge and mostly untapped resource for its students who want to be entrepreneurs. Of course you have to luck into finding a worthy idea during your prime years there for most of the tangible resources (free internet, computers, business professors’ advice, etc). But for me – even years after graduation – I still utilize my Alumni network to grow my business.
