Evan Jennings started E3cubes when he was 13 years old. Today he is attending Clarkson University and with guidance from the Reh Center for Entrepreneurship his business is taking off.

Jennings, a home-schooled high school student from Lowville, N.Y., won a 2013 Clarkson University Young Entrepreneurs Award.

He won his award for his business the E3cubestore Rubik's Cube and Puzzle Shop, an e-commerce site that sells puzzle cubes designed for speed solving and competition.

Each year through the Young Innovators and Entrepreneurs Program, up to five young entrepreneurs or innovators have an opportunity to attend Clarkson through a combination of merit-based financial aid (after accounting for other aid for which the student may be eligible) and the acquisition by the University of an ownership interest in their business ventures in lieu of tuition payments.

In addition, these students' businesses receive the services of the Reh Center for Entrepreneurship and/or the Shipley Center for Innovation, advice from alumni mentors, and are offered space at no charge in the Peyton Hall incubator.

Applicants submit a completed business plan, a 90-second-or-less video that answers the question "Who am I, outside of my business?", and a brief description of their business.

Sponsored by Clarkson's Reh Center for Entrepreneurship and Shipley Center for Innovation, the competition is aligned with the educational mission of Clarkson, which has a long-standing tradition of creating entrepreneurially minded business leaders who understand how to develop a successful business, harness innovative technologies and build opportunities for commercialization in the marketplace.

The innovative program was established in 2010 and featured in Money magazine as a strategy for paying for college.
