So this is it – a semester’s worth of thought and work all brought to fruition.
From day one, I’ve been a fan of experiments. Not necessarily the scientific kind (I think the last science class I took was freshman physics), but the adventurous kind. While I’m not trying to slam science here, there is something to be said for going full steam ahead on a project and hoping that it works out. That is my kind of experiment. And, seeing as you’re reading this, it’s your kind of experiment as well.
Three years ago I started Yellow Box Studios with my friends to make money while making films. It was the perfect idea. But that idea changed, and has grown into something far different than I could have initially conceived. I will be writing about that experience, as well as how being on campus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign shaped what my business is today.
This site is yet another experiment. One that will hopefully better the student-entrepreneurship community, and help bring about the realization that starting a business is easy, all while providing the tools to grow that business into something successful.
I ask for those students who have started businesses, or been part of such a venture, to reach out and share your thoughts and experiences (and don’t worry, I don’t believe in free labor). If we all go full steam ahead together, I truly believe we can turn this site into a resource for every student out there with an idea.
