Millennials are becoming stronger than ever, even after their suffering during the global recession. They are coming alive with new visionary ideas and strong optimism. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce reported in 2011, that millennials opened nearly 160,000 new businesses each month. Nearly 27% of all millennials are self-employed. One of America’s rising entrepreneurs is Sawyer Howitt.
Sawyer Howitt graduated from Lincoln High School in Oregon and has already learned the financial and operation aspects of running a successful business. He has discovered unique ways of connecting consumers with different brands. He’s concerned with customer service. He was recently appointed as project manager for Meriwether Group, where he will find ways for businesses to adapt to the ever-changing technologies.
As a bright young millennial, he is working to better his community by donating to a number of charities, mentoring youth and has recently begun fighting for women’s rights. You can find Sawyer Howitt either fishing, playing racquetball or at a Portland Trailblazers game. Sawyer Howitt is succeeding in part due to the easiness of securing small-business loans and security workplaces with short-term leases. This allows for less up-front capital.
Sawyer Howitt has named eight cities that are prime for launching a business and they include: San Francisco, Austin, Salt Lake City, Palo Alto, Denver, Yorba Linda, Minneapolis and Santa Monica. Entrepreneurship captures the interest of established businesses, investors and city officials. Silicon Valley is becoming a thing of the past.
