The Entrepreneurial Community

How to Build an Entrepreneurial Community– This year we launched Wave, a mobile program in which we match high school girls with young professionals at companies like Giphy, Spotify and Refinery29. Each girl gets three advisers and meets with them once a month for three months. The concept of mentorship is outdated — it’s no longer enough to have one person shepherd you through your career. You need a community. So a 16-year-old girl meets these three people, and if each of those three people makes two other introductions, she’s got a network of nine people — at 16! That’s a path to your first internship –Nisha Du
