White House Working With Young Entrepreneurs

| July 30, 2010 | 4 Comments

whitehouse entrepreneursCNN reported that the White House brought together a group of young innovators for a day of collaboration this week. The over 70 young innovators were gathered from various startup companies big and small from across the country.

The White House realized the ability for young people to create new solutions to old problems and also move on these ideas quicker than traditional methods. The article stated “Legislation can take years, but the next-gen leaders who met at the White House can move mountains with a quick phone call, or even a tweet.”

This forward movement by the government is good to see. Often young people no matter how successful are overlooked by the people with the most power. This gathering will hopefully be one of many to follow not only by the White House but by other organizations. “Our future rests in the hands of this nation’s next generation of leaders, and their ability to successfully empower communities to create, elevate, and sustain community solutions,” Buffett said.

    Wow, that's awesome!!

    It's great to hear that the country is acknowledge that innovations no longer comes with age and experience, but simply passion and brilliance. Those young entrepreneurs must have been so excited to be part of that group. Many old issues need new methods to change it, maybe these young entrepreneurs will help lead the way ;)

    Great article!

    I couldn't agree more. Thinking back to my parent's approach in the engineering field and what I experience in my field is “I can't take you seriously until you've been in the business longer.” Well, old ideas don't work as well as they did, the market is different, your audience is likely different, a change is needed. And for the White House to take a step in the direction they did can really impact the thought process of business owners…in a good way. Great post!

    Wow, it's great that they're open-minded enough to listen to new ideas. Some of us young creative types can think outside the box…being exposed to progressive technologies helps to inspire new techniques or ideas.
