Institute of Hip Hop Entrepreneurship (IHHE) cofounders Tayyib Smith and Meegan Denenberg want to make something clear about the nine-month program for aspiring entrepreneurs:
There’s a reason why IHHE is for adults.
There needs to be “more attention paid to men and women who are slightly older who, for some reason, once they get out of high school, are just considered adults and should navigate their own way by any means possible,” Denenberg recently told Forbes.
“I don’t know if that’s necessarily a realistic perspective in the world that we live in, when people are living way longer than we ever expected to.”
Denenberg and Smith talk with Forbes about the genesis of IHHE, the importance of diversity in the workplace, how their students “exceeded expectations” after the presidential election and more. Check it out.
