branch LogoHow can we solve the Internet’s comment section problem? This is one question Josh Miller, Hursh Agrawal, and Cemre Gungo set out to solve when they founded Branch in 2011. Functioning like a gated conversation platform, Branch allows knowledgeable individuals to have valuable conversations free from trolls and blind monologues. Everyone can read, but only a few can comment—cultivating intelligent and interesting dialogues.

The project, which was backed by $2 million in seed funding, landed CEO Josh Miller on the reputable Forbes 30 Under 30 list—and at 22, he’s not even close to the big 3-0. He is full of advice for aspiring young entrepreneurs, though. Find out more about Branch and what he has to say to young people by reading his profile here.
