Who is Marco Terry? About the College Startup Series

Marco TerryEver since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be an entrepreneur. I started my current company about 10 years ago and have had a great time running it. It’s the fulfillment of a dream.

Over the years, I have noticed two things. First, there are very few resources to help college students start their own businesses (though this is improving). Second, the little advice there is usually focuses on conventional wisdom, which often has shortcomings or is plain wrong. So I did something about it: I wrote this series.

I am always looking to improve this information, so I welcome comments. You can connect with me through Linkedin - Marco Terry -, through Google+, and through my twitter handle @marco_terry.

Now, go out there and build a great company.
