Jackson Denke is a young man in California who founded Denke Private Equity at 16 years old. At 18, he’s the founder and CEO of Analytica Group, an educational company that teaches how to diversify assets—from stocks to first-edition comic books and rare playing cards.
Denke is on a mission to teach young people how to safeguard their financial future. He has a course with New Directions for Youth, which offers programs for at-risk youth and families. He says not knowing about money is contributing to the poverty cycle. NTD asked him what’s the most harmful misunderstanding of money among young people.
