Our co-founders Laurie and Mary Winn wrote an article for Under 30 CEO about why high school students can start companies and what we can do to help.
“Part of the reason younger people make better entrepreneurs is because of their higher propensity towards modern technology. Today’s students have grown up having information at their fingertips through smart phones, dancing in front of a television and gaming device that records their movements, and networking through social media sites. Who remembers when the Nokia mobile phone, the Nintendo Super Mario games, and dial-up Internet were new and exciting innovations? We do—but not today’s generation. Their acceptance and understanding of cutting edge technologies makes them better positioned to push beyond what is currently possible, unconstrained by the boundaries of past realities.“
