Are Young Workers the "Go Nowhere" Generation?

While Some Think Millennials Are the Lost Generation, Scott Gerber Plans to #FixYoungAmerica

Support Entrepreneurs

Q: How is #FixYoungAmerica going to achieve your goals?

Gerber: In two ways. First, a national outreach and crowd funding (which includes a mainstream media campaign, a 10-city bus tour in partnership with Young Invincibles, and ongoing virtual and live events); and two, the production of the #FixYoungAmerica book, which includes essays on rebuilding America’s entrepreneurial spirit by top leaders who hail from all sectors (from the U.S. Congress to community colleges to startup accelerators). The book is not a comprehensive list of solutions; in fact, the game plan is to continue collecting solutions as we go, and include the best as a digital addendum to the book.

What it is, however, is the start of a conversation about how we can better develop, support, and rally around the young Gen Y-ers who see the economic distress we’re in and want to resolve it, often by founding new companies of their own. More young Americans are starting companies now than ever before.
