Josh Doering: Student Athlete Entrepreneur

29

Meet this week awesome studentpreneur: Josh Doering, 20 years old, Student in Business at Morningside College and entrepreneur at Seed Slide in Iowa.

Wrap up:

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 Josh ‘s journey that are similar to the studentpreneurs I have interviewed:

Josh saw an opportunity through his dad’s business and he leveraged his dad’s connections. He paired up with an experienced partner, which can be a good thing. Josh understands the power of his student card and leverages it to the maximum for not just discount but reaching out to experienced entrepreneurs. He is another great example that Startup Weekend like competitions are a great trigger, so apply to one! Finally he maximizes his passion: he is a student athlete, student entrepreneur and VP of the entrepreneurship club. Are you still complaining because you are a busy student?
