I started my first company at fourteen, I licensed music from independent record labels and artists to broadcast via an internet radio station. From this I learned a lot about the music industry and fostering a community and a team. The station grew to twelve team members, 24 hour broadcasts and a wide community of listeners. The blog had a huge readership and was part of Google News.
I'm currently working on my next company, in the non-profits and charities space. To be announced soon.
The last company that I co-founded is a marketplace for digital content called GetDealy, it has over 80,000 signups and has done deals with major web brands. http://getdealy.com/
I'm the organiser of the Tomorrow's Web Meetup in London, a quarterly event that brings incredible founders into a forum to learn and share our experiences on the web. http://tomorrowsweb.co.uk/
I've been mentioned by publications such as The Wall Street Journal Online and interviewed by France 24 TV and BBC Radio. I contribute to Virgin.com
I've spoken at Microsoft London, Teen Web Conference, MLGen Corby and the ICT Spring Europe event to 3000 people. I was an adopted entrepreneur at LeWeb 2011 and my ticket was covered by Silicon Valley Bank. I've attended conferences such as TechCrunch Disrupt, LeWeb and TWC. I'm a member of Millennial Generation Entrepreneurs. http://mlgen.com/
I've been featured in TheNextWeb, The Wall Street Journal Market Watch and interviewed in France 24.
I've decided to stop out of College to build a great company and follow a self directed 'Uncollege' path. I finish High School in May 2012 and am looking at Silicon Valley as a future home.

The Lean Startup movement has redefined what a company is, these principals are already starting to shake up business but this self validating, iterative nature can be put into place in other areas and can transform companies.
