Discover “It” Credit Card for Undergrad Students

Discover “It” Credit Card for Undergrad Students

By Larry Chiang

The old way to be an entrepreneur as an undergrad was to put business expenses on your credit card and be in debt.

The new way is no debt

The new way is to get cash back and points from our startups expenses WHILE NEVER PAYING INTEREST. It leverages Discover card’s grace period.

The new way is to hack up a FICO score up over 700 as an undergrad. As a VC I recommend that you self-fund your student startup.

The Stanford entrepreneurship concepts I advocate: “Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole”. I teach this under ENGR 145. It’s tech entrepreneurship.

My concepts move you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve

******************** Student Credit Card by Discover


I learned of this because of Discover’s Orange Bowl.

Side-by-Side student credit card comparisons

If you’re a student and blog using WordPress, I’ll send you a Discover Orange Bowl care package that comes with an orange bowl lanyard and official patch.
