A boy & his dog

Posted on October 7, 2016

Year 12 student and young entrepreneur, Riley Mitchell, believes a mentor is the most important asset a young entrepreneur can have.

He recently shared his experience launching a dog shampoo business, whilst in Year 8 at St Paul’s, with the Courier Mail.

“Most students want to go into their own business, and while they may have a good idea, they don’t know where to start,” he says.

“That’s why it is so important for young entrepreneurs to find an experienced mentor.”

At St Paul’s, our Entrepreneurs Club offers students, teachers and parents the opportunity to work and learn alongside one another to grow their ideas into businesses. Participants will have access to coaches, market-leading resources and first class facilities, including ‘entrepreneur coaches’ who are on hand each workshop to help participants will identify their own skills and blind spots. For more information regarding the Entrepreneurs Club and Entrepreneurialism at St Paul’s, visit our website.

Riley has put his buisness plans on hold whilst he completes Year 12, but is very excited to relaunch once exams are finished. We look forward to hearing about your business venture in the future, Riley!
