New College Grads: Is NOW the Time to Start a Business?
August 9, 2016
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: I’ve looked at life from both sides now (Joni Mitchell). The prospects for recent university graduates can go one of two ways. Gloomy. Too many grads are chasing too few jobs, as companies run lean, lower wages, and cut staff to survive. Optimistic. There’s never been a better time for college classmates to start a business together with a brilliant idea, relevant website, social marketing and minimal capital. What additional skills do they need to reach this side? The experts speak. Bryan Pearce, EY: “The biggest risk is not taking any risk” (Mark Zuckerberg). José Fernandez, The Global Good Fund: “There’s lots of bad reasons to start a company. But there’s only one good, legitimate reason, and I think you know what it is: it’s to change the world” (Phil Libin). Sébastien Gibier, SAP: “’What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that somewhere it hides a well...’” (Saint Exupery).
