I read this post, ‘Banking off the Election: Entrepreneurs Get Creative,’ over at the WSJ’s Independent Street Blog. Its about companies producing ‘election’ specific products to try to grow. While the post focuses on high tech offerings, campus entrepreneurs have made T-Shirts, thrown parties, and formed firms in order to exploit events — from homecoming football games to traditional holidays like Valentine’s Day — for years.
There is no doubt many campus entrepreneurs are making money on the nominating process and will go after even more during the election. College students are politically passionate and they have pockets full of money and plastic. Are any of you out there taking runs at the election to make money for your campus ventures?
