Many bachelor of business degree students may think they have the next great idea for a company or product, but feel like they have to wait until after graduation to develop their ventures. However, it is never too early for them to start pursuing their dreams.
Entrepreneurial college students will soon have a new online resource in the form of KickStart, a networking platform from the development firm KickStart Media. When business degree seekers and early-stage investors log onto this network, they will have access to tools that can help them make their startup goals a reality.
"There are so many out-of-the box thinkers in colleges and universities across the nation creating great business and product ideas that simply lack the tools and funding opportunities to truly excel," said Yannick Schindler, KickStart co-founder.
Using KickStart, entrepreneurial students across the nation will also have the ability to connect with like-minded peers online. The network is free of charge as long as individuals have a valid school email address. While beta testing is set for November, KickStart will officially be ready during the first quarter of 2012.
