 Students get startup smarts, schools get donors: USEED crowdfunds motivation
Description Millenials get a bad rap for being entitled, lazy and self-centered. The people at USEED, a new crowdfunding site for college students, have a different view: they believes millenials are eager to show initiative if only they’re given an environment that encourages it.

“Students from all majors are interested in being entrepreneurial but they crave real-world experience,” said co-founder and CEO Brian Sowards. “We realized this fundraising platform could be a way of empowering experiential learning.”
