This week I'm honored to accept membership in the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC, http://yec.co), an invitation-only organization comprised of the world's elite founders and business owners.
They only accept a select number of entrepreneurs to join their ranks every year. Since they began, over 15,000 have applied to join and only 1,500 have been invited to join. Beyond the quantifiable metrics of having either $1 million in annual company revenue or $1 million in financing since company inception, they look for entrepreneurs with exceptional character. Further, the membership consists of founders who are active participants in their local communities and helping others achieve business success.
Certainly our work at Start Co. is about helping others achieve business success. Hopefully, many of our founders will one day be members of YEC too.
