Note regarding COVID-19:

We are sending our thoughts and best wishes to those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

About Next Gen HQ:

Next Gen HQ develops products and services to energize the world’s greatest entrepreneurs, giving them the momentum they need to win at business and life.

Our purpose is to empower entrepreneurs to design the lives they want to live and to overcome obstacles that get in the way of their success. We’re focused on serving entrepreneurs -- the impact-driven believers & achievers who are pursuing something greater than themselves.

Entrepreneurs have used Next Gen resources to raise tens of millions in venture capital funding, get featured in major media outlets, access mentorship from senior executive leaders, and foster powerful new friendships. Each day we aim to support members through our online community, partner resources and in-person event series -- including Next Gen Summit, a #1-rated, Award-Winning conference for young entrepreneurs.

We work with dozens of household brands including American Express, Capital One, Dell, Target, the Wall Street Journal, and Comcast, engineering original activations and strategies to help them better access, engage with, and influence the next generation of business leaders. Next Gen has become a ‘go-to’ for corporate partners striving to stand out within a competitive landscape.

The fun stuff:

Next Gen HQ is not your typical company. We represent a community of the world's most accomplished and inspiring entrepreneurs. Our members are Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees, Shark Tank contestants, Thiel and KPCB Fellows, a high schooler who founded and sold a marketing agency, a teenager who launched a multi-million dollar sock company, and our members’ companies have even gone on to acquire one another. Our partners are industry behemoths like Capital One and Target as well as leading startups (and unicorns) like Brex. Suffice to say, the network and work we do at Next Gen HQ matters. And we do it better than anyone else.

Working at Next Gen HQ might be for you if:

  • You are a self-starter and will always go the extra mile
  • You are a great communicator -- especially with a pen (keyboard*)
  • You exhibit strong project management skills
  • You have an eye for design, and a desire to improve
  • You can come up with a solution to any problem thrown at you
  • Nothing gives you a greater sense of accomplishment than helping others succeed
  • You thrive in a supportive community, finding friends and people you can build your life and grow your career with

Next Gen is probably not for you if:

  • You are looking for a role with the same straight-forward tasks each day
  • You want a 9-5 job (do those really exist?)
  • You despise roller coasters (mental ones, that is)
