Entrepreneurship is not any subject which you can learn from colleges it is the execution of your idea, “All students should have a start-up during college or in the phase of High school. Doesn’t matter if it’s successful or how big or small. Worst to worst it will make you 10x better employee than someone with no exposure.” Starting early has many advantages you don’t have much responsibilities, so you can focus on implementation.
When you start in your college days you have many years ahead to setup your empire. The primary thing that drives any aspiring entrepreneur to succeed is the approach has to be action-oriented, if things remain on paper, they will never lead to success. Two, like your work. Three, learn from mistakes, wrong decisions. So this three things that will drive you are practical approach, love for work, & learning from my mistakes.

Interest and dedication towards your work is the important aspect of growth.
