Panel of Young Entrepreneurs

Steve Garrity, Hearsay Systems,
Clara Shih, Hearsay Social,
Jeff Seibert, Digits,
Joshua Reeves, Gusto
and Tristan Harris, Time Well Spent

Six young Stanford grads and entrepreneurs — Steven Garrity, Clara Shih, Kimber Lockhart, Jeff Seibert, Josh Reeves, and Tristan Harris — share their experiences starting companies and raising capital. While being in their 20s may seem to be an obstacle to outsiders, they said they “flipped” this liability into an asset — focusing instead on their raw ability to bring innovative ideas to life. They advise all young entrepreneurs to be persistent, opportunistic, and scrappy.
