The Next Wave of Netrepreneurs: High School Students

August, 2002


In a survey of 101 San Diego County high school seniors in economics classes, Computer Economics found that 8% of students are already running a business online while another 56% are either planning an Internet business or are thinking of running an online venture in the future. All of the entrepreneurial students in our study who are running an e-business are male. Among the students currently planning a business, only one was female. Within the 37% of students who say they have never considered running their own business, the majority are female.
