University of Michigan | Open.Michigan Whiteboard Advisors DELTAK Academic Partnerships IndieGoGo's Co-Founder Wants Kids to Launch 10 Startups in 10 Years Slava Rubin, co-founder and CEO of crowdfunding website IndieGoGo, has an ambitious plan to plant the seeds of entrepreneurship in the minds of students: He wants them to launch a new startup every year for ten years in middle school through college. "The best way for students to become entrepreneurs is through practice and experience," writes Rubin in his contribution to the #FixYoungAmerica book, to be published in May. "LeBron James became a basketball star because he practiced and played basketball regularly from an early age, not just because he watched Michael Jordan on television." Rubin believes entrepreneurship deserves a place in classrooms nationwide, right alongside calculus and biology. Few schools, says Rubin, teach students that they can become successful entrepreneurs and business owners, so the career field doesn't appear on students' radars the way that "doctor" or "lawyer" might. Rubin's curriculum is divided into four parts, one for each semester of the school year.
