That's just to list a few. Now, if you mean individuals who were PhD students and entrepreneurs at the same time, well, I have no idea. However, I suspect that this would be an extremely bad idea as both take up an inordinate amount of time, and that doesn't even ensure that you're going to be successful in either. So, it would seem to be a surefire way to fail at both if you tried to do both at the same time.
