Summer is winding down and you may be starting school or maybe out of college in the real world – now what? While you may be fine tuning your resume, you may also be thinking about how you can be your own boss by starting your own business! As you already know, technology helps you to be successful in college. It will also prove to help you tremendously in the business world. No one knows this better than blogger Jared O’Toole from We’ve partnered with Jared to host a Young Entrepreneur contest. To enter, current students and recent graduates should make a video telling us about their big entrepreneurial idea. Doing so will make you eligible for a chance to win one of four new Windows 7 Professional PCs to help start a new business.
