Helping Student Entrepreneurs Start Their Businesses

Do you know a student with a great business idea?

sifeclarenceThere are lots of them out there, but most haven’t started making it happen yet. And thanks to Clarence De Silva, our intern from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), we found out why!

Through Clarence’s research, he discovered that the biggest reasons stopping most student entrepreneurs were time and money. With that in mind, he proposed that if the website builder could be made available to them it would take away some of their biggest hurdles!

We’re a big fan of student entrepreneurs (remember our Painted Picture?) so we couldn’t resist. Through Clarence, we’ve teamed up with SIFE (Students In Free Enterprise) to donate $250,000 in free small business websites to student entrepreneurs!
