"I love working with students because of their boundless energy and optimism. But too many of them become discouraged when they hit predictable roadblocks. We see the same patterns each and every semester. The Startup Student is a candid, practical, and tactical guide to help the aspiring student entrepreneurs navigate these roadblocks. Students can't change the world if their idea never comes to life. The Startup Student will put them on the right path forward." -Diana Kander New York Times Best Selling Author of All In Startup "The Startup Student is a great read for any entrepreneur or any student, but for every entrepreneurship student it's really more of a bible! It's THE book I wish I had back when I was a student! The insight provided is valuable, timely, and specifically contextualized to aspiring student entrepreneurs. Eric Liguori and the 20+ other entrepreneurial thought leaders hit the nail on the head by laying out practical, real-world advice to not only help you ensure entrepreneurial success, but also avoid a few landmines along the way." -Steve Kaplan New York Times Best Selling Author of Be the Elephant and Bag the Elephant "The Startup Student is the best resource I have seen for future or current college entrepreneurs. This is not a textbook, it is your framework for how to get the most out of your college education. I was fortunate to get involved with my school's entrepreneurship program and student club beginning the first day of my freshman year, and have lived the startup student life for 4 years. The advice and experience packed into this quick read is invaluable!" -Connor Alstrom Fresno State Entrepreneurship Club President (2013-2015) "The Startup Student is a fantastic book that provides students with highly necessary advice from the real-world perspective of a student entrepreneur. The content is fresh, honest, and practical, making it especially relevant to those looking to make their entrepreneurial dreams a reality. I wish I had this book in my hands during my studies!" -Dr. Olli Vuola Executive Director, Aalto Ventures Program, Finland "The Startup Student is an invaluable tool and roadmap for any student exploring the travails and thrills of plotting and executing an entrepreneurial journey. Liguori has passionately guided students down this treacherous yet exciting path for years. With the help of awesome coauthors, Liguori has compiled an invaluable series of short chapters to help prepare students for many of the unsuspecting challenges they are sure to face." -Dr. Tim Mescon Senior Vice President and Chief Officer - Europe, Middle East and Africa AACSB International "The Startup Student is a well-researched playbook for students who want to in- crease their odds of success in college, in business, and in life." Rebecca Corbin, President, National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship "As both an entrepreneur and entrepreneurship educator, I found it very refreshing to see so much practical knowledge in this book. No academic theories here! Instead, it's packed with real-world examples and suggestions. Students thinking about a minor, or major, in entrepreneurship should read this first!" -Kevin Gadd Founder & CEO, Venture Highway "Such a gripping book! Every entrepreneurship student, and even non- entrepreneurship students, should read this book before pursuing their own business opportunity." -Dr. Agnieszka Kurczewska Entrepreneurship Professor, University of od, Poland"
