The legal industry is among the largest in the United States, with an industry size of over $437 billion. And with this huge industry size, it comes with no surprise that lawyers offer some of the most expensive services in the world. Frustrated with the inaccessibility of legal services to the common man, 21-year-old founder and newly-minted 2018 Thiel Fellow Joshua Browder became dedicated to ubiquitizing them. I had the chance to interview Joshua and...

Over the years, forced marriage has emerged as a problem not limited to just one country, culture, religion, or ethnicity.

Understanding this concept and determined to change this dynamic, 21-year-old Arifa Nasim shares the motivations behind her initiative to put an end to forced marriage,...

As Instagram continues to reinforce its strong foothold in connecting the world, bringing together over 1 billion users around the world, predominantly through pictures, the social media giant realized that by currently only allowing content creators to upload short-form videos it practically offered no competition to platforms like YouTube. Importantly, according to a Cisco study, over 80% of the internet’s traffic will be video as soon as 2019. By offering no competition to platforms like...

In the status quo, technology is often looked at as a vehicle by which the world is made a better place. But what are its implications on the future of work? Social media has “connected the world”. Biotechnology has been at the forefront of making the diagnoses and curing of diseases a much more efficient process.

As some of society’s biggest problems go unsolved after countless attempts by researchers globally, companies like Intel and Google are spurring the interests of youth to solve these problems through science fairs and pitch competitions.

As the landscapes of business and innovation continue to change rapidly over time, the prominence of the startups ecosystem has never been greater. But at the same time, the gender disparity in business has also reached a point where it cannot and should not be ignored. TechCrunch reports that only some 17% of startups have a female founder. Additionally, Fortune reports female founders only received 2% of all venture capital dollars in 2017. Understanding and...

In the status quo, we think of entrepreneurship being synonymous with the stereotypical Silicon Valley technology startup. We immediately think about Hewlett-Packard, which started from humble beginnings in a Palo Alto garage. We think of Tesla, we think of SpaceX, we think of Google. But the truth is, there are great startups far beyond the confines of the Silicon Valley. However, though business hubs have developed in various areas of the world, startups from outside of the...

Jesse Kay, being only 17 years old, has built 20under20s, a podcast geared towards helping young entrepreneurs under the age of 20 learn from successful businesspeople through their stories.

Today, it’s become incredibly easy to find, subscribe, and listen to tens of thousands of podcasts over topics such as news, business, politics, and much more. They’ve served as a free and accessible mode for gaining inspiration, staying educated and informed, and sparking personal and professional growth among all populations. But few youth have taken the initiative to work on their own podcast, given the difficulty in hosting big-name guests that audiences are interested in...
