    Millennials, or Generation Y, were born between 1977 and 1997. This generation is already a huge market force with a power that will only grow as today’s teenagers become adults.

    In the next few posts, we will explore some of the differences between Millennials and the generations before them. Including: differences in technology and values.

    Stay tuned.
