Age is truly just a number when it comes to your ability to help the world.
My guest for this episode set out to solve a problem in one of the greatest health crises in the world at only seventeen years old.
Meghan Sharkus is the founder of ExpressionMed, a company that creates designed medical adhesives for diabetes devices.
Instead of venture capital funding, she raised $114,000 through several business competitions, ranging from Detroit Startup Weekend to Harvard Business School. She’s achieved the distinction of becoming a Thiel Fellow, and manages a team of twelve with a company that has experienced exponential growth by solving a problem and bringing relief and some joy to those who are suffering with diabetes.
Meghan shares her journey in this conversation while also letting us in on her book and keynote speech The Youth Advantage, where she dives into all the advantages of starting a business at a young age and how you can get started.
