Meet Jaylen Bledsoe; the 15 year-old entrepreneur from St. Louis who has started his own tech company, Bledsoe Technologies, an IT consulting firm that is one of the fastest growing tech companies in the nation.
The sophomore at Hazelwood West High School recently sat down with a local Fox station to discuss his company, and its million-dollar value.
His advice to fellow young people:
Take risks. There’s nothing you can do as a minor that will shoot you down for too long. Because you’re young, you can jump back up, and keep going.
On how his business has grown:
At 13 I had two contractors, now I have 150 contractors around the country.
