GenFKD has been a great sponsor for Bold’s business show for years, and now the organization is rebranding to become GenBiz to better help millennials and Gen Z understand the power of entrepreneurship.
Bold TV founder Carrie Sheffield sat down with GenBiz’s David Grasso — who also hosts Bold Business — to discuss the importance of shining a light on young entrepreneurs. Sheffield said the Bold Business audience can watch the entrepreneurs spotlighted on our show and see “a vision of what’s possible in their lives.”
Sheffield discussed how she believes how lucky we are in the United States to have the ability to start a business, whereas in other countries there can be limiting regulations. “I’ve met so many entrepreneurs, for example, from Italy or Germany and even the U.K. — the U.K. is making some reforms — but in other parts of the world, it’s so hard to start a business,” Sheffield said.
Sheffield said the millennial generation is “by nature very entrepreneurial.” She continued, “We’re in this like national crockpot where we can enjoy all these benefits of being an entrepreneur or a ‘solopreneur’ or, as I like to say also, if you’re working for a larger company, you can be an ‘intrepreneur’ and you can do entrepreneurial things within your organization.”
