Five Inspiring Young Authors
September 12, 2018
“Writing a book is a unique feat for a number of reasons; not only does it require months of laborious work and strategy but it also must reflect a true area of passion and interest from the author. After all, the sheer amount of research required to create a 200-300 page creation is undeniable. This is especially challenging when the author is young; paired with college classes, extracurriculars, and while still coming into one’s own, writing a book can be one of the most defining yet intensive projects a young person can take on.

The Making of a Successful Young Entrepreneur
August 8, 2018
"As a father of two young boys, ages 7 and 12, I continually reflect on whether the education they receive is relevant to the challenges they will face in real life. I'm also hoping that they will eventually choose the path towards entrepreneurship, so I try and provide them with tools that allow them to understand and explore that path.
I recently met a young entrepreneur and Georgetown student who just published his first book and has already started a company and two student organizations -- pretty impressive for a 21-year-old. We spoke about a variety of topics, and it got me thinking about what kinds of values and mentality shape many young entrepreneurs. Growing up, this man's parents instilled in him three key values: curiosity, commitment and confidence. He strongly believes that these traits helped make him the entrepreneur he is today."
Spotlight on Alex Heintze
Next Gen Summit
April 27, 2018
"Meet Alex Heintze - bestselling author of new release, The Generation Z Entrepreneur, which features stories of entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos and Alex's own experience working in VC.
You're the author of The Generation Z Entrepreneur. Tell us about the book.
Over the past few months, I've written the book The Generation Z Entrepreneur, and it has been one of my most challenging and rewarding experiences to date. The Generation Z Entrepreneur outlines seven key principles for young people to follow to fast-forward their careers by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset and positioning themselves to one day start a company. Now, it isn't some crazy “drop out of high school or college” or “quit your day job” advice you may read elsewhere. On the contrary, The Generation Z Entrepreneur brings in the advice and stories of successful entrepreneurs who share insights despite the age difference, such as Henry Ford, Reid Hoffman, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson. Moreover, it looks into the lives of people just like us — young people hungry to follow their dreams."
