No matter a person's age or level of experience, anyone can become an entrepreneur. However, one of the most essential measures of a successful entrepreneur is how much passion and enthusiasm they have behind an idea. Often, the best businesses grow and thrive from being rooted in this passion behind a single idea.
The attorneys at Franchise.Law value supporting entrepreneurs because they ARE entrepreneurs. Attorneys Jason Power and Jonathan Barber understand the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to own a business and stay on top of the latest industry trends.
Franchise.Law is proud to announce the Entrepreneur Scholarship, which is designed to support aspiring and future entrepreneurs. This scholarship allows students to explore why they are passionate about becoming an entrepreneur.
