Today, The Young Entrepreneur Council rang the stock market closing bell. Our CEO, Bobby Emamian, a proud member, was fortunate enough to join them! Check him out in all his mustached glory in the photo above. YEC, an invite-only community of the world’s top, young entrepreneurs, visited the NASDAQ in New York City today in honor of Entrepreneur month.
Recently, the YEC announced a new partnership with the White House to develop a new investment model for the Generation Y entrepreneurs to help their companies make it off the ground. The new organization has been dubbed Gen Y Capital Partners, which will invest in as many as 100 start-ups over the next 3-5 years and, through subsequent funds, several hundred over the next 10 years.
The YEC is a fantastic group of people, and we are honored to be a part of it!
