College Voices: Entrepre-dores

Apart from being full-time students, some undergraduates have started their own businesses. So what challenges do they face and what support do they need?

Names like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg fill the news headlines. But, who are the next big names in business and will they come from Vanderbilt?

In this episode of College Voices, we explore how student entrepreneurs tackle the challenges of starting a business and the support that they receive from Vanderbilt.

This episode was reported by Maya Bridgewaters and produced by Brynn Jones. Blair McDonald is the Managing Producer and Abhinav Krishnan is the Host and Executive Producer. The College Voices logo was designed by Emery Little.
