It's not easy being the new kids on the block, but these entrepreneurs are leading the way at Severn School.
Twelve students have been exploring business opportunities since mid-October, creating 4 different ventures between them.
One of the ideas included a music app venture that would show students what songs their peers were listening to.
"I've always thought about starting a company like this, but I never took that next step with production," said Jackson Gunhus.
Research from Junior Achievement and Ernst & Young LLP showed that 41 percent of teens would consider entrepreneurship as a career option, yet only 6 percent of teen boys have started a business and only 4 percent of teen girls have done the same. The study was conducted by Wakefield Research between October 15 and October 22.
