Meet the New Generation of World-Changers
The opportunity to change the world may be greater today than any other time in history, and young entrepreneurs are leading the charge. This passion to make the world a better place is driving a new generation of entrepreneurs, disrupting industries and established norms along the way. These entrepreneurs are not afraid of breaking rules and frequently adopt an unconventional approach to realize their goals.
More and more young people are choosing to embrace the challenge of entrepreneurship instead of becoming a cog in the wheel of a big corporation. A powerful combination of boundless curiosity, technological prowess, and the desire to create a better future is empowering these entrepreneurs to chase their dreams, often in the face of insurmountable odds. Any business — even one with designs on changing the world — will need to overcome numerous challenges and hurdles on the road to success.
- How can entrepreneurs build a path from idea to profitability?
- What are the trade-offs between dreams and reality, if any?
- What are the new technologies and markets that inspire young entrepreneurs?
Join us on January 22 to discover how young startup founders are making a difference and helping prove that success is possible at any age.
