Co – founded company by age 12. This company went on to become one of Africa’s largest ‘freeware’ and ‘shareware’ companies (by user numbers) at the time. Having won several 5 stars awards and award nominations, our software was used and downloaded by over one million people, with users spanning across the globe, from the USA through to countries in the southwestern pacific ocean. Our users ranged from sole proprietors, to staff at multimillion dollar companies and Fortune 500 companies such as Google, Inc. Though most of the products were free and hobbyist, I made my first few bucks online through ads by age 15.
