The StudentPreneur podcast is exactly what it sounds like! It’s a podcast where student entrepreneurs from all over the world get to share their stories. They address questions specific to student entrepreneurs like how they balance studies and business, how they get started and how they change their mindset.
Each week, a student entrepreneur comes on the show and is interviewed to motivate and educate young people on how to make their ideas into a business! These include students not just from Australia but all around the world. It’s so interesting to hear all the ideas and experiences young people have all around the world.
For example, Episode 45 features two young entrepreneurs from Melbourne University, who have created an app called FirstStep, to allow young people all around Australia to begin connecting investing with spending. The app works by rounding your purchases up to the nearest dollar and then investing the difference in the stock market.
Each episode will focus on a particular aspect of what it’s like to be a student entrepreneur. The average age of the StudentPreneurs on the show is 14! How incredible is that? This should encourage any young person out there who thinks they have a good idea to go for it. You are never too old or too young. If you don’t know what to do, or how to go about it, this is definitely a great way to start learning.
You can listen to the StudentPreneur podcast online, or download the app and listen to it anywhere. If you have your own business and idea, sharing your experience a great way to get exposure. Applications are open to everyone who has a business so if you want to share your story, go for it!
We’re pretty familiar with entrepreneurs as pretty much all businesses (including this one) start with one! Elyse Daniels, the founder and director, has also shared about her experience starting a business. You can read some of our previous blogs or watch our videos to learn more about her journey and ours!
We want to end by encouraging any young people out there who are passionate about their ideas and want to make them a reality. It’s not always easy, but it’s possible. If you persevere and stick to it, it will pay off.
