A ray of hope for Gen Z

In “The Breakfast Club”, Principal Vernon instilled fear in the hearts of the older generation by saying, “You think about this: when you get old, these kids – when I get old – they’re going to be running the country. Now this is the thought that wakes me up in the middle of the night. That when I get older, these kids are going to take care of me.”

This is likely a popular fear with each generation, that the kids after them will someday run the country. However, it is an unfair, and even oppressing, idea. In every generation, there are always a group of innovators that shed a ray of hope for their group.

From the brains of babes (well, teenagers)

That is exactly what the creators of Teen Made have done. According to the developers:

Teen Made is the place for teen to start following their passions; form business connections, join projects from companies, open their own Teen Made shop, learn from extraordinary leaders, and build their portfolios up. We will be offering a Project Marketplace, 100% Teen Made Shop, and Business Academy for teens to learn from the best of the best.

By teens, for teens, for the future

Teen Made’s mantra is to “invest in the future”. The teens who developed the website have created a platform where fellow teens can join incredible projects, build their portfolio, follow their passions, make a shop, find mentors, and get investors for ideas.

Teens can also learn about the business world through the Teenage Business Academy. In the Teenage Business Academy, participants can learn from top leaders, engage in teen-to-teen chats, and swap ideas with others through forums.

This website was built by teens, for teens. Innovation from such young minds is inspirational. As such, it may be beneficial for potential investors to sign up for the site’s beta and become mentors to the teens. You never know who these kids may grow up to be.
