The student-hustle isn't for the faint of heart. For some, choosing to pursue entrepreneurship in or immediately following school was borne out of necessity, while for others, an opportunity opened the door. But undoubtedly for all, the Bison education and exposure helped pave the way for business success. Tune in to find out how local Howard grads have grown businesses and non-profit initiatives through experiences and networks at Howard University.
