Inspirational Graduation Quotes For Entrepreneurship Grads



As a new graduate with an Entrepreneurship degree, you are now armed with everything you gained and developed in school.

The best graduation quotes for you will be inspirational quotes about your purpose and potential!

As you reflect back upon your commencement speech and that great feeling that comes with graduation season, you’ll consider the direction you choose. I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance. Give yourself grace during this transitional period. 

Your start up plan doesn’t necessarily include an “open for business” sign yet. 

Maybe you don’t need graduation quotes to inspire you. But they help boost your spirits and motivate you to follow through.

Maybe you need additional skills. Maybe you need to earn as you develop your business. Maybe you simply need time to figure it out before taking that leap of faith and venturing into the unknown without a backup plan.

The good news is that there are many advantages to being a young entrepreneur, and your paths are endless.

‘And wouldn’t you know, there is no single right way! 

You learned to be self-reliant and flexible. Let those learnings and the practice help you now. Remember what you learned, and allow yourself to be self-confident and brave. Take time to assess where you need to. This is your opportunity to be your best. 

This path is your character defining moment – your turn to choose and define what success looks like!

Start by considering: what did you gain in school? 
  • Self-management
  • Business management skills
  • Technical knowledge relating to your field

 You could talk about this for hours, right? Right!


You learned to dream and to back it up with what it takes to work toward a dream and make it come true. Now that you graduated, it’s time to move forward at a different pace. Your pace.

There are distinct advantages to being a young entrepreneur and through your personal network you are putting support in place – it may be emotional, monetary, or literal hands on support – but it’s there. There’s no better time for you to complete or review your business plan and pursue your dream.
