I started writing this series 6 or 7 years ago with students in mind. I wrote about what I predicted would be the coming tidal wave of university entrepreneurship and did a Ted talk about what a great opportunity students in this era have to try their hand with startups. The tidal wave has arrived in full force by now.
Below is also a seven-step series of exactly what students "need to know" to be successful as they approach the world of startups.
Hope you enjoy and find it useful!
