STARTER HIGH - We teach you how.

Tech entrepreneur and philanthropist Brian Hamilton started his first business -- mowing lawns -- when he was nine years old. By the time he was in high school, he was employing classmates to help and used the profits to pay for college, his first in his family to go. He knows, from first-hand experience, that entrepreneurship is something young people can do. The Brian Hamilton Foundation’s Starter High online program teaches teens the basics of starting a business.
