Building Entrepreneurship for High School Students

The ability to be a successful Entrepreneur takes vision, planning, marketing, branding and networking. Networking practices of physically meeting people, exchanging business cards, phone calls, lunch meetings, and even golf outings are becoming a rarity and unobtainable luxury for young entrepreneurs. The access to monetary resources is unavailable because high school students live with their parents and are financially challenged.
