I recently noticed that Sean Combs (P Diddy, Puffy, etc.) was a campus entrepreneur when he attended Howard University in DC. I thought I saw it while checking out StartupNation.com’s new Dorm Room Based 50 rankings (entry open until 3/15). Some cool background from the wikipedia entry on Sean Combs;
While enrolled at Howard University, he gained a reputation as a party promoter, showing an early penchant for marketing and promotions. In a display of his tenacity, he would also travel back and forth between Washington, DC and New York juggling his classes and his internship with Uptown Records.
