Abstract
The paper focuses on internet entrepreneurship by Chinese university students. By looking back on the development of internet business, the paper sums up that the development of university students’ start-ups have gone through five stages, which are the budding stage, the growing stage, the diversifying and rapidly developing stage, the transitional stage and the booming stage. The paper points out the distinguishing features characteristic of each stage and several new developing trends for internet start-ups. Firstly, internet entrepreneurs become younger and more educated; secondly, the “small and beautiful” micro-enterprises has become the major force in innovation; thirdly, in terms of gender, more male students choose to start their own internet business than female students. The conclusion is that the start-ups by university students have a rosy future and the entrepreneurial activities by them will become a main driving force in creating the situation of “mass entrepreneurship and innovation”.
