It's open to cadets, evening undergraduate students, and graduate students.
Students curious about the pay an entrepreneur will earn should spend the time to research the type of industry they would like to pursue and spend much time speaking with current entrepreneurs in that field. For entrepreneurs, the sky is the limit on what your salary will be. However, to do well, entrepreneurs must work hard, have diligence, patience and the ability to adapt with ever changing circumstances.
