Junior Achievement for Real: Young Entrepeneurs Take Off

Entrepeneurship has made its way to campus, some 500 chapters of the Collegiate Enterpeneur Organization (not to mention similar groups like Students for Free Enterprise) indicate that starting a business is not limited to the middle-aged and well-heeled. New businesses for youth first flourished in the late 1990s with the dot-com boom and though that faded, it provided the infrastructure for youth enterpeneurship today. Among websites available to aid fledgling enterprisers are the SBA's www.mindyourownbiz.org and www.YoungEnterpeneurs.com, a self-help website based in Washington State. Iowa State, Maryland and Oregon State even have programs designed to facilitate business start-ups by undergraduates.
