Slava Rubin, co-founder and CEO of crowdfunding website IndieGoGo, has an ambitious plan to plant the seeds of entrepreneurship in the minds of students: He wants them to launch a new startup every year for ten years in middle school through college.
Raising money through crowdfunding, says Slava Rubin, CEO and co-founder of IndieGoGo, will help students streamline the process of opening a business, and his plan is part of the #FixYoungAmerica campaign, an initiative to help reduce youth unemployment through entrepreneurship.
For Rubin, this is all about teaching kids that anyone with a good idea and a dream can become the next Zuckerberg.
