Seven teenage tech entrepreneurs who made millions before they turned 21
If you’re a tech entrepreneur, or want to be, the good news is there’s still plenty of money to be made if you have a great idea, and can attract the right audience and/or investors.
According to the Kauffman Foundation, the average age of first-time tech entrepreneurs is 39 but really there’s no age limit -- they can be much older, or much, much younger. In fact plenty of teens have managed to make it big with nothing more than a great idea and the willingness to pursue it.
WhoIsHostingThis.com has put together a new infographic showcasing seven teenagers who made millions in this way. These include Summly app creator Nick D’Aloisio who made $30 million by selling his creation and services to Yahoo, and Brian Wong who founded mobile advertising platform Kiip.me which, to date, has raised $15.4 million.
The below infographic provides information on the age at which each entrepreneur made his or her millions, and the age they currently are, what the idea was and what they are doing now.
