At my first Startup Weekend event, I distinctly remember Brooke Martin standing up to pitch her startup idea. Brooke was probably the most memorable pitch, but not because she was 12 at the time: she spoke with confidence and certainty in her concept, a skill that many experienced entrepreneurs still find challenging.
