StartupNation has announced the winners of the 2008 Dorm-Based 20, America’s top 20 college-based businesses and the young entrepreneurs behind them.  Some of the highlights include Affordabook, a place to find college textbooks on the cheap; Note2Home which helps parents, coaches, and teachers keep in touch with students and their crazy schedules; and my favorite is CaptainU, a site designed to connect high school athletes with college coaches to facilitate the whole recruiting process–it’s a pretty genius idea from University of Chicago’s Michael Farb.

Cooking up an idea to change the world in your dorm room?  Throw your name in the hat for the Dorm-Based 20 2009 Competition.  What’s the upside of being a winner besides joining the ranks of other college entrepreneurs like Michael Dell, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame?  The Dorm-Based 20 winners will get extensive national promotion on leading national TV, radio, online and print media outlets, and publicity for a start-up is pretty priceless.

So what’s your great idea?  Wait…don’t tell me.
