13 Ways for School-Age Entrepreneurs to Build Their Networks

What’s one tip you’d give a school-age entrepreneur who wants to build a network but is having trouble being taken seriously?

The following answers are provided by the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs. In partnership with Citi, the YEC recently launched #StartupLab, a free virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses via live video chats, an expert content library and email lessons.
