Start a Business

Many students and recent graduates have had extremely rewarding experiences setting up their own businesses. These ideas have ranged from offering private tutoring lessons, to companies which have successfully grown and launched their careers. 

If you are one of those inspired, motivated business thinkers, CaPS offers many resources to get you started. We encourage you to thoroughly investigate your ideas as we want to ensure you are well informed of all the steps you need to take.
