The "Young Entrepreneurs" cohort for Nantucket Conference 2014

Each year, a group of organizations and individuals underwrite free passes to the Nantucket Conference for a select group of founders under the age of 30. This year, the 15th year of the conference, our underwriters were 10X Venture Partners, Dyn, Dharmesh Shah of HubSpot, Alex Goldberg of Canary Ventures, Scott Weller of SessionM, Verizon, and the UNH Center for Entrepreneurship. We're grateful to them, and to everyone who applied for a pass. (It's not a scientific process — underwriters get to choose from the list of applicants.)

Here's the 2014 cohort of young entrepreneurs:

We hope to see you next month on the island, when our featured speakers will include Neil Blumenthal of Warby Parker, Slava Rubin of Indiegogo, Gail Goodman of Constant Contact, and Prat Vemana of Staples, among others. And if you haven't received an invite, you can request one here.
