ABOUT

The University of Nebraska and Gallup found that more 55% percent of young people, ages 18 to 29 want to start their own business and that 5% had already started their own business. “To gain a further perspective on how important age is for starting a business, small business owners in Nebraska were asked about the age when they first thought about starting or owning their own business. What should not be surprising is that these first thoughts of entrepreneurship came to many at a relatively young age. Almost two-thirds (64%) first thought about starting a business when they were under 30 years of age.” The following companies were started by high school or college student entrepreneurs: Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Facebook, Nike, Pizza Hut, myyearbook.com, FedEx, workinmyroom.com, Hudl, and Popsey Cakes.
