Today at TiEcon 2007, a conference on entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, one of the opening speakers was a 13-year old named Anshul Samar. Anshul is CEO of Elementeo, a company that makes a chemistry card game. “With Elementeo card decks,” according to their brochure, “kids learn chemistry without even knowing it,” all the while playing a strategy game of Create – Combat – Conquer. Anshul took the microphone and told the audience that his company plans to raise $1 million by the end of middle school, which is next year!
What was I doing at age 13? Please don’t ask.
