While there is no prescribed "Golden Age" when one can become an entrepreneur, however there is certainly an added advantage of starting early towards this journey and it is as early as your campus days as a student. There are various advantages associated in your pursuit for entrepreneurship during the student days and the important ones can be stated as below:

1) Ample free space for meetings and brain storming sessions: College libraries, Common
discussion areas, open sitting areas --- all of these can be utilized free .

2) Easy to push your business plan to the investment community :As long as you have an
idea which has a commercial sense, you may get away with even if you have not perfected the art
of business presentation because of your student status and not being a pro.

3) Risk taking appetite : This is one of the biggest advantage being a student , you are
young,energetic and can take the risk of taking plunge into an uncertain territory i.e. no
guarantee of monthly fixed salary but a long term view of making something really big and
compensate all so called certainties associated with a 9 to 5 job. The moment you have tasted
a fat pay monthly check your ability to part with this comfort stands in the way of your
entrepreneurship zeal where you need to necessarily compromise this assured inflow.

4) Networking : Being a student you will have access to the whole student community around the
globe and if you managed to rope in like minded folks then all your ideas / discussions can be
validated through this network free of cost and you may also ended up getting that one USP in
your proposition which will ultimately make it work.

5) Success story : As a student another important advantage is there is no need to prove your
past success story as you will have none .On the contrary as a professional when you approach
the investment community the "Success History" becomes the major obstacle to justify as to
why you should be funded.

Note : Consider this thread at it's infant stage and would encourage readers comments to make it grow and become more robust discussion to make it more interactive for the students aspiring to be an entrepreneur.
