Just got done reading a very interesting article about young, upstart companies, run by…. very young people. There are a number of businesses throughout the country run by people fresh out of their teens! It is a crazy world indeed. Just the other day I was asked when I will be graduating from high school. : ) (I do have a baby face)
The businesses span the gamut from conventional product manufacturing and distributing
My own personal opinions on young people running companies aside, there was a very interesting quote:
“We’ve been seeing kids creating businesses for a long time, but most were service businesses that were difficult to scale. The Internet is the great equalizer.”
It’s true, no matter what your age, or experience, the Internet is equalizing or minimizing the cost and effort it takes to test an idea out. So, what are you waiting for, why not start a business today? You can start by getting some ideas and figuring out what made these young entreprenuers so successful.
