Why We Have Set Out to Make a Difference
"Our economy is facing a crisis that Americans are not aware of–a decline in entrepreneurship.”
(Rep Richard Hanna of New York)
In September 2014, an astonishing study was released by The Small Business Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce. That group determined that the new business creation in the USA has dropped by nearly 50% since 1978. And the Millennial generation who is often cheered for it’s startup creation is actually starting companies at the lowest rate in 25 years, 65% less than the 1980s.
While this is a complex problem, we believe that part of the answer lies with our ambitious youth. Children have vibrant imaginations and a natural enthusiasm for business. We have set out to foster that innate desire to build and to create in America’s youth and in the process, we hope to help change the tide.
Here’s to swinging to the upside.
