Giving students an enterprising path to start on
The Boston Globe - 02/16/2013
As we continue to look for strategies to jump-start the American economy, here’s one way we can promote innovation and accelerate economic growth over the longer term: give every college student the opportunity to be an entrepreneur.
There’s no doubt students would support such an initiative. In a recent national poll commissioned by Northeastern University, more than two-thirds of Americans between 18 and 30 said it’s “extremely important” or “very important” for colleges and universities to teach students about entrepreneurship, including how to start their own businesses.
