A friend and I are launching a business. We were having trouble thinking of a name—I’ve never been good at naming things.
So we decided to approach the local student advertising association. We are utilizing the most valuable resource of our university: The students.
There are so many students around.
Some of these students have talent. Others have acquired skills. All of them have knowledge about something.
But all this human capital is usually left dormant. It’s like periodically stuffing your mattress with cash, and promising to invest when you’ve saved “enough”. The problem is that this “enough” is usually an arbitrary amount.
The idea that a diploma marks the amount of education necessary to start doing real things is just as ridiculous. The 4 years of education is just as arbitrary.
Why not start investing that human capital now? And give yourself a chance to earn interest?
