Discover used the Orange Bowl to launch the IT credit card for college students. Credit card lead generation is something I study– I pay particular attention in how credit cards are “sold” to college students.

I’m the one who uncovered how at a VC conference (that I was speaking at

that you could self-fund as an entrepreneur selling the Ritz Carlton credit card

Get it?! It was a VC conference at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay 🙂

The Discover It credit card product has a big entrepreneurship angle. Here are things to pay attention to if you’re an undergrad student

1/ working capital

4/ Points and cashback on nominal business expenses that are reimbursed

5/ build credit score while you’re self-funding your new startup with your dorm room as your HQ

6/ master ENGR145’s Anchor Concept: Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole

It moves you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve

7/ get a mentor

8/ do a video blog at a big conference like SXSW
