TiEYouth Forum @TiEcon 2012- only few seats left!

TiEcon 2012 Speaker Highlight: Cameron Cohen - Entrepreneur Philanthropist, a Child Prodigy

If there are so many young 11, 12, 13 year old entrepreneurs out there, what's the big deal of yet another one joining the ranks, you might ask. What makes Cameron Cohen, the then 11 year entrepreneur stand out is not so much that he created an iPhone app and it made money on the app-store. It also wasn't that he learnt how to write it and built it when lying immobilized in a hospital bed when recovering from a leg surgery to remove a bone-tumor from his leg. But what makes Cameron Cohen stand out is that of the $50,000 the app made, he decided to donate $20,000 to the Chase Child Life Program at the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA, where he had his bone tumor surgery. A noble gesture indeed by a young pre-teen so that the hospital could purchase MacBooks, iPads, iPods, and video games for teen and preteen patients to use during their stays.
