Extreme Entrepreneurs

The keynoters for Gen E’s Student Business Showcase were Sheena Lindahl and Michael Simmons, Millennial Entrepreneurs, who started and run Extreme Entrepreneurship Education and are authors of “The Student Success Manifesto” and “All or Nothing, Now or Never”.

The two are very energetic evangelists for student entrepreneurism, who travel around the USA in a bright red and black Extreme Entrepreneurism bus. They have a message that obviously connects with young people.

Michael related to them, “80% of the millionaires in this country are entrepreneurs. The founders of Google don’t make millions in salary but rather work for only $1 per year. However, their stock is worth $18 billion.”
