After Connor Young graduated with a biology degree and started a CrossFit gym in 2011, it was easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition was his passion, and he coached similar-minded people on health for a living.
But then in 2014 when Connor moved to San Francisco and into healthcare entrepreneurship, his intention to eat healthily crashed into the grim reality of the startup lifestyle. Instantly, his free time vanished as he struggled to get his business off the ground.
Connor was living in a hacker house with 50 people. His housemates were starting new tech companies, conducting groundbreaking genetics research, and launching promising sales careers. But because of this, they were busy, and couldn’t prioritize their health.
They resorted to convenient snacks or the best hyped meal replacement drinks, powders, or bars without understanding the types and quality of ingredients, caloric makeup, and overall nutrition they were actually putting into their bodies.
He began taking his friends down the difficult path with nutrition lectures and cooking classes, but it was more than they could initially handle. Connor’s friend Jason just told his “Connor, don’t give me more work to do. Just give me a solution.” That’s when the idea of Ample was born.

Chelann Gienger is a young entrepreneur. How young? You’ll never know…
She started her first business at the age of 15 and from that point on, she was hooked. The whole idea for EB25 sparked during the first couple months of her second business startup, NUYU Juice Bar. During that time, it dawned on Chelann that life is all about surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are running the same race you are. For her, that meant young entrepreneurs. But there was only one small issue… Hardly any young entrepreneurs were around her. And if that was the case for her, she figured it must be the case for other’s as well.
What’s the most logical way to solve this problem? To create a platform that attracts young entrepreneurs, of course! So, here we are with EB25.
EB25 interviews inspiring entrepreneurs who started their entrepreneurial journey at the age of 25 or under. Chelann follows them through their journey of being an entrepreneur~ the ups, the downs, the fun and the sad. Her hope is that their stories will inspire and empower you to live a life of freedom and balance while being a young entrepreneur.
