Severn Entrepreneurs Go Into Business

It's not easy being the new kids on the block, but these entrepreneurs are leading the way at Severn School.

12 students have been exploring business opportunities since mid-October, creating 4 different ventures between them.

One of the ideas included a music app venture that would show students what songs their peers were listening to. 

"I've always thought about starting a company like this, but I never took that next step with production," said Jackson Gunhus. 

Research from Junior Achievement and Ernst & Young LLP showed that 41 percent of teens would consider entrepreneurship as a career option, yet only 6 percent of teen boys have started a business and only 4 percent of teen girls have done the same. The study was conducted by Wakefield Research between October 15 and October 22.
