Coming from an entrepreneurship family who has always had a small business growing up, it has molded my life in different forms. Always giving me a different perspective on life, keeping me on my toes, and showing me that you can achieve anything with hard work and persistence. Growing up helping my family with their small business constantly kept me curious, creative, and at the edge of life giving me the entrepreneurship spirit. I realized from a young age that small businesses mattered and they did make a difference which is why I decided to invest my time with Axiom Cyber.
Late last year, the folks at Microsoft began a new initiative aimed at providing the world’s young people with greater opportunities for jobs and education.
To do so, the software giant began the YouthSpark program, which intends to create opportunities for 300 million of the world’s young people in the next three years. In a recent post from Microsoft, they discuss the goals of the program and the lessons that those involved have learned throughout the process.
There is an “opportunity gap” for the world’s youth, according to the post, and Microsoft intends to use its titanic resources to help close it. For many young people, especially in urban areas or developing nations, there just is not enough work or affordable education.
With YouthSpark, Microsoft is trying to help. Check out their post to learn more about how.
