Venture Capitalists Invest In Younger and Younger Entrepreneurs

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

The now-famous teenager Nick D'Aloisio, whose news reading app Summly was purchased by Yahoo for tens of millions of dollars, is now the latest in a stream of young tech entrepreneurs who became multi-millionaires overnight.

Brian Wong is the co-founder and CEO of Kiip.

Our Washington correspondent, Todd Zwillich, is filling in as host all this week. Follow Todd on Twitter for the latest from Capitol Hill.
