Founding the Future: Empowering the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs

It’s a universal: an older generation will lament at how much lazier a younger generation is. Today is no different, as Millennials age and Generation Z nears adulthood.

With a generations-old decline in rates of entrepreneurship and surging income inequality, younger generations need ever more to buck the trends and become more entrepreneurial.

How do make that possible? If we want future leaders, founders and innovative to be more diverse, informed and impactful, then we need to ensure they have the resources they need to turn their ideas into reality.

This panel will explore what areas are in most dire need of being addressed and which can be the most impactful for setting our future generations of entrepreneurs up for success. We’ll discuss resources, engagement, representation and real examples of what’s currently being done to address these needs.
