Millennials and Entrepreneurship: A Conversation About Engaging the Next Generation

Panel Discussion

According to Kauffman Foundation’s February 2015 State of Entrepreneurship Address (PDF), “Millennials (born from 1981–1997) have created fewer and fewer businesses since they entered the workforce in the early 2000s, despite expressing strong interest in entrepreneurship and having been exposed more than any previous generation to entrepreneurial training.”

What are the barriers? How can they be overcome? What is the potential impact for the U.S. economy? Join us for a conversation on the challenges faced by the new generation of entrepreneurs.

Panelists include:

  • Scott Shane, Ph.D., A. Malachi Mixon III Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, Case Western Reserve University
  • Andrew Yang, Founder and CEO, Venture for America

This discussion will be moderated by Deborah D. Hoover, President & CEO of The Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
