About the Author:

Andrew Rosenstein is a seventeen-year-old entrepreneur in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After being diagnosed with dyslexia at age twelve, Rosenstein wanted to change misperceptions about people with learning disabilities. In 2012, as a seventh grader at AIM Academy, a college prep school for students with language-based learning disabilities, Rosenstein launched his first e-commerce business. After generating almost $20,000 in revenue, he felt compelled to start a business that meant more to him personally. 
 
In 2013, along with his friend Sophia Gross, Rosenstein started Opportunity Rise, a student-led organization that raises awareness and funding for students with learning disabilities. Opportunity Rise sells branded apparel; part of the proceeds enable Rosenstein and Gross to give talks around the United States, sharing the message that having a learning disability can be an advantage rather than a disadvantage. 
 
In 2014, while expanding Opportunity Rise, Rosenstein secured a summer internship at Glass-U, a millennial-led company that markets customizable sunglasses. Having worked his way up from an intern who sold sunglasses at street shows and college campuses, he now manages the company's social media marketing efforts. 
 
Rosenstein has spoken at length on the topics he discusses in A Millennial World, including the President's Lunch at Global Business Group in New York, YMS London in 2015 and 2016, and time spent as a TEDx Speaker. 

In addition to being a full-time student, varsity basketball player, and managing his business ventures, Rosenstein travels around the country, sharing his research, insights, and personal experiences on the power and potential of millennials. He has spoken at many venues including the International Dyslexia Association, Dr. Angela Duckworth's Character Lab, and the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center.

Review:

"By growing up with dyslexia, Andrew has experienced what it is like to struggle with something holding him back, and yet he continued to push through to find something that he loves: entrepreneurship. A Millennial World shows just how much Millennials-- with diverse backgrounds-- can learn and grow in today's age." -Scott Barry Kaufman, Scientific Director, The Imagination Institute and Author of Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined
 
"Andrew is one of the most well connected 17-year-olds I've met in the last few years and in A Millennial World he shares how he has been able to connect with so many people over his evolution of growing up. He shares how Millennials have the ability to do everything he has done and more just by the power of technology, an advantage other generations weren't exposed to and didn't have access to." -Abbee Phillips, Principal at JM Search
 
"Andrew Rosenstein's understanding of Millennials is as engaging as it is profound. For a generation growing up with constant technological disruption, low job security, and high economic uncertainty, they've all had to become entrepreneurs in one way or another -- their entire professional lives becoming their own small businesses. A deeply thought-provoking read." -Michael Auerbach, General Partner at Subversive Capital

 
"Andrew is the true definition of an entrepreneur. I met him a few years ago at a networking event and ever since he has never failed to impress me. A Millennial World shows the potential of such a powerful generation. It speaks not only to how Millennials can be powerful but as well as how companies can take advantage of how smart and creative they are." -Ben Kirshner, CEO & Founder of Elite SEM

 
"Andrew understands how Millennials work, buy, and communicate. A Millennial World offers valuable insights on how organizations can better prepare themselves for Millennials to takeover!" -Brian Smith, UGG Founder

 
"After meeting Andrew, I realized how important it was for our company to figure out a strategy to market to millennials. They're an extremely important consumer group as well as an important part of the workforce. Andrew is an expert on millennials as he himself is one. My team and I very much enjoyed working with him as he really opened our eyes to the millennial generation." 
-Jarrod Kahn, President of Accessories and Home at Global Brands Group

 
"Andrew is an exceptional young person and entrepreneur whose work and knowledge are assets to anyone he engages with. He's been a part of our team at GlassU for 3 years and I'm privileged to have been a part of his growth and to have had him be a part of ours. A Millennial World touches on the power of what young people like Andrew can do." -Daniel Fine, Founder and CEO of Glass-U, Co-Founder and CEO of Team Brotherly Love, and Forbes 30 Under 30 Recipent

 
"At Voxburner, our goal is to better understand the constantly changing strategies of youth marketing. Andrew worked with us to achieve this mission by bringing his unique Millennial mindset and experiences. I believe that companies can utilize A Millennial World to enhance their connection with this generation, that happens to have the largest spending power the world has ever seen." -Simon Eder, Founder and Head of New Business at Voxburner

 
"Finding your passion can be hard at a young age. Andrew has been able to not only find his passion, but he has been able to find something that he loves and is good at. I believe that after reading A Millennial World, every Millennial will be able to find their passion and mix it with a talent that they are good at to become successful. Andrew is an entrepreneur who is never scared to take risks and this book proves that age and challenges should never hold you back from doing what you love." Cameron Herold, Former COO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK and Bestselling Author
