Session 2: Challenges as a Young CEO

A session at TiEYouth Forum

Saturday 17th May, 2014

2:05pm to 2:30pm (PST)

There has been a significant shift in the demographical make-up of startup CEOs. Now, more and more of our youth are taking up the reins in solving the problems of today – effectively becoming the CEOs of tomorrow.

But what are the barriers? Juggling the responsibilities of managing a team, growing a company from the ground up, working cohesively through age-bias, and all the while balancing a social & academic life is not an easy feat, but often a topic of conversation amongst younger CEOs & co-founders.

Join us for the TiE Youth Panel Discussion on Challenges as a Young CEO and hear from our highly accomplished panel of Youth entrepreneurs. Derive key lessons from their experiences and philosophies and walk away with the inspiration to kick-start your journey.

Ben Jacobs· CEO & Co-Founder of Whistle

Guautam Gupta· CEO & Co- Founder of NatureBox

Nikhil Arora· Co- Founder of Back to the Roots
