Being a summer entrepreneur is a great way to be creative and spend time doing a job you love. There are both government and private sponsored entrepreneurial summer opportunities for students interested in starting up their own business. These resources will help you develop a business and marketing plan, as well as aid you in financing your venture. Do your research into grants and loans available to get your business off the ground. Government agencies, in particular, offer a wealth of resources on their websites to connect young entrepreneurs with professionals and consultants in different areas of the industry, as well as community partners and other important contacts. If you are keen and innovative, explore your options in the field of entrepreneurship this summer.
