Ep. #7: Startup Breakdown

Startups are in. Tech is in. So what do we get out? In this episode, I meet an 18-year-old founder - four years later. Sharing his experiences as a young entrepreneur, we talk business, the new economy, and California - where he’s headed next year. 


Mark Shelton is a software engineer and social entrepreneur. For four years, he led Bloom, a non-profit he co-founded to provide young entrepreneurs with mentoring, workshops, and co-working space. He has also been involved with StartupWA, Teach Learn Grow, Goldman Sachs, Boston Consulting Group, the Fogarty Foundation and the Telethon Kids Institute. Having recently graduated with a degree in Computer Science and Psychology, he will be pursuing further study at Stanford University next year.
