This - what suggestions do you want? We haven't really got much to go on with what you've said there. You don't even say what country you're living in (apart from it's not the USA) so we couldn't even advise you on how to stay within the law, even if anyone did know that.
Also bear in mind that you're asking on a computer forum, not a business forum, so while I'm sure there are people here who are business savvy, it's not going to be top of the list of everyone's expertise.
With that in mind, here's some questions, hopefully with some hints and advice mixed in:
- What country do you live in? Or if you don't want to say, have you checked the various laws, especially with respect to operating a business as (I presume since you're under 16) a minor?
- With regards to the above, do you know about registering a limited company, business bank accounts, accounting, VAT registration, data protection, etc.? If not then you'll need to build up a very good knowledge of these before you can start building a business.
- You say you want to be in the tech industry - doing what exactly? Where does your skillset lie?
- What exactly will be you be doing in your business? What market research have you done? How will you carve yourself out a niche from other people in the market?
One particular warning bell is that you mention spending time on it over the summer to get some cash - this doesn't sound like a business to me, more trying to earn pocket money when you're not at school. Starting a proper business generally takes a large initial investment, a few years worth of work to build up a reputation, research your market and get a sound business model in place, and a huge amount of full time work.
