OregonÂ studentsÂ Aman Sharma and Bhavin Gupta help three startups.

Two Indian American students have built an incubator that aims at supporting newly minted entrepreneurs by connecting them with business experts and finding interns for them.
Aman Sharma, a junior at Westview High School, and Bhavin Gupta, a senior, have come up with Oregon Business Incubator that helps entrepreneurs for free, reported OregonLive.
“We operate at completely no cost because charging startups is counterproductive to our mission statement,” Gupta was quoted as saying.
“Furthermore, we hope to be an inspiration to younger students who want to pursue a career in business and entrepreneurship,” he said.
They said they’ve already helped three startups, including the one that inspired them to start the incubator.
The incubator works as a sort of middleman, connecting startups with outside sources that have the needed knowledge or skills. They also help companies find interns with theÂ knowledge the startups may need.
Their goal for Oregon Business Incubator is modest. They hope within a year to have startups calling them instead of the other way around, the report said.
