Why This Entrepreneur Believes It’s Time To Fix Young America – with Scott Gerber

by Tim Jahn on March 9, 2012

Scott Gerber is the founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council, co-founder of Gen Y Capital Partners, and author of the book Never Get A “Real” Job.  He’s been featured in the New York Times, TIME, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, and in many other media outlets educating the world of the importance of youth entrepreneurship.

Scott and the Young Entrepreneur Council (which I’m a member of) have launched a campaign called FixYoungAmerica to bring some actionable solutions to the table in the fight against youth unemployment and underemployment.

In this interview, Scott and I chat about:

  • what the point of FixYoungAmerica is
  • why it’s so important to educate the rest of America on solutions like crowdfunding
  • why Scott created the Young Entrepreneur Council and FixYoungAmerica
  • how YOU can make an actual, real difference
  • and much more!
