Sean Nasiri is creating an equity crowdfunding platform for his own generation, GenY, and he’s appropriately calling it, “GenYrator.” To explain why he’s focusing on millennials, he said, “More young people are becoming entrepreneurial or electing to join startups, so there needs to be more done to support them. Also, because we are the most powerful generation on the planet.” He’s not only interested in tapping into their entrepreneurial nature, but also wants to tap into their focus on social good, by creating a “mission-driven portal that wants to make investing about more than just returns. We are combining real investments with real positive social impact, but this is NOT a philanthropy, though it can still give you the same good feeling.”
