excerpt from interview...
YP: Do you have any quick tips for young pro-social entrepreneurs? What are steps they can take to get started?
AA: From my background as a social entrepreneur, I think as a rule you have to follow your instincts. I think that’s important for anyone, but it’s especially important for entrepreneurs who are working in new spaces. Especially entrepreneurs who aren't dong it to make a buck, but rather to make an impact.
As far as what steps they could take to get started. There are resources out there. There are general resources. Our site GenV.net, as well as DoSomething.org, have good resources. And I should say that Youth Venture works with 12-20 year olds in the US and 12-24 year olds abroad. Young social entrepreneurs should also take a look at what other young social entrepreneurs are doing …. we have profiles of young social entrepreneurs [on GenV.net] from which youth can learn and through which they can connect with those young social entrepreneurs.
