Synopsis

Starting a movement is not about the entrepreneur, it's about the followers. It's about them. And then it's about us. It's never about "I" or "me". 

The global economy is becoming more collaborative every day. It has brought new disruptive models to giant existing industries–as well as those that fund them–leveraging the internet to create massively scalable businesses and brands.

In The Movement Economy, Ash Kumra and Ankur Garg–two national speakers, founders and entrepreneurs– share not only why it's possible to start a movement, but how. 

This book is teaches entrepreneurs the real-life strategies used to create movements and become a change for millions around the world. It teaches how to create and leverage a crowd to maximize results and a win/win for everybody.

Learn from entrepreneur luminaries who have created movements that have empowered millions and generated hundreds more. Learn how brands, now worth $100 million dollars each, unite people on common ground with a shared objective to mobilize together and spread a message across a nation very quickly.

This book was inspired by Youngry co-founder's Ash Kumra & Ankur Gargs national entrepreneurship movement that spanned over 50 locations, 50,000 entrepreneurs, over 150 endorsers and close to six figures generated (all within 90 days!). Ash Kumra and Ankur Garg have spoken to over 10,000 people and have been cited in 100’s of articles including Forbes, Huffington Post, American Express Forum, Entrepreneur Magazine, Startup America/Up Global, LA Times, OC Register, Tedx & The White House.

How Ash Kumra and Ankur Garg surrounded themselves with entrepreneurs years before they we're ready to create a movement.

Part 2- Conception

How to get started as an entrepreneur who is trying to create a movement and why understanding the changing economy is a necessary first step.

Part 3- Tapping the Crowd
