Is there any better time to start a business than as a student? Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Richard Branson and many other successful entrepreneurs would probably argue not. Students with free time and few responsibilities can take risks that parents with mortgages and full-time work can’t take. Launching a business is also brilliant real-world experience and could even cover tuition fees.
These practical business ideas require very little start-up capital and are flexible enough to fit around your studies. Having said that, they are not paid-by-the-hour jobs disguised as businesses. They are all scalable, meaning you can grow revenue with minimal cost and time commitment.
