Meet this week awesome studentpreneur: Steinar Henskes, 24 years old, Student in Business at University of Amsterdam and Entrepreneur at Bird Control Group, the Netherlands.
Each studentpreneur’s story is different and what works for some people doesn’t for others, however I’d like to point out of few things in Steiner’s journey that are similar to the studentpreneurs I have interviewed:
He may not have been an entrepreneur in high school but he was an elite athlete which has a lot of similitudes of being an entrepreneur. He lets himself try his options by taking gap years. He applies entrepreneurial thinking to his decisions such as going to universities to “divert risk”. He realises that the university environment and the startup environment influences each other, it’s the essence of being a Studentpreneur! For him too, you can’t do everything by yourself, you have to surround yourself with fellow entrepreneurs, aka mentors. So, he learns by talking to fellow entrepreneurs but of course a lot by doing too.
