Gerber Hits a Nerve

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

One affiliation I am thrilled to have made over the years at StartupNation is with Scott Gerber. You may have seen him contributing on our Small Business Braintrust video series, or if you’re a Gen Y entrepreneur, you may know Scott in his role as founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council, which is a very smart and succesful gathering of younger entrepreneurs who are passionate about fostering entrepreneurship among their peers.

Most recenly, Scott has launched Gen Y Capital Partners (www.genycap.com), and I wanted to call your attention to this very cool initiative.

What I like about it is:

A) They will be investing in select Gen Y businesses at the earliest stages.

B) They will take on responsibility for federal student loan debt.

C) They will assume responsibility for costs of living during startup.

D) They will provide all-valuable peer-peer mentoring, which we’ve seen here at StartupNation become a game-changer for many entrepeneurs.

Kudos, Gerber and and Young Entrepreneurship Council, for being relentless, creative and clever about tearing down the stumbling blocks for your fellow Gen Y-ers. Way to START IT UP!
