Mentorship in the Next Generation

The expanding internet access and knowledge availability have empowered a growing number of high school students to create their own apps, leading to a surge in innovative and entrepreneurial talent among this young generation. The remarkable achievements of young app developers continue to inspire and reshape the technological landscape.

At the age of 15, Nick D'Aloisio created the groundbreaking app "Summly," which harnessed the power of natural language processing and machine learning algorithms to transform lengthy news articles into concise and easily digestible snippets. This innovative approach revolutionized the way people consume news, attracting significant attention and recognition. In a testament to its value and potential, Summly was later acquired by Yahoo, solidifying D'Aloisio's impact as a prodigious app developer.

Another remarkable young talent, Robert Nay, made waves in the app industry at the age of 14 with his creation, "BananaGrams." This popular word game app captivated players worldwide, challenging them to form words from a set of tiles in a race against time. Nay's creative ingenuity and intuitive gameplay design struck a chord with millions of users, propelling "BananaGrams" to the top of the App Store charts. With millions of downloads and a dedicated following, Nay's success serves as a testament to the incredible potential of young app developers to capture the imagination of global audiences and disrupt established markets.

These inspiring stories highlight the extraordinary abilities and entrepreneurial spirit of today's high schoolers. As access to the internet and knowledge continues to expand, more and more young individuals are equipped with the tools and resources to bring their creative visions to life. Their innovative solutions address real-world challenges, redefine industries, and create new avenues for exploration and entertainment.

The question then becomes, how can we foster this talent? To us, that is where Future Gen and our mentorship tool comes in. We want to be able to mentor this young talent and help guide them in the right direction. At Future Gen, we also want to allow exploration through examples through social media. We're excited for what we have coming, and as always, if you or someone you know would like to sign up for early access to #futuregen, please sign up here!
