In a sense, a Millennial entrepreneur is like an uber-Millennial. Millennial entrepreneurs exhibit an amped-up version of many of the traits intrinsic to their generation as a whole — they are even more tech savvy, more empowered and more wound up for success. They have an intense desire to change the world by remixing and reshaping industries to give power to the people instead of to an elite few at the top.
As Susan Gregg from online retailer Modcloth notes on her website, “We want to fundamentally change the fashion industry! For so long, creating fashion has been this top-down process.” Modcloth gives fans a voice through its “Be The Buyer” feature, allowing them to vote on potential inventory to be sold on the site.
