Three years ago, Jaylen Bledsoe started his own technology company at the tender age of 12 years old. Fast forward 3 years and the now 15 year old is heading a company valued at US $3.5 million.

Bledsoe sat down for an interview to explain how he was able to start his company at such a young age and transform it into a million dollar entity. Bledsoe Technologies offers a range of services including E-Commerce solutions, social media branding, business and tech consulting, among other things. Outside the realm of work, he currently attends Hazelwood West High School and plans to attend Harvard once he finishes.

It’s always inspiring to see a young mind breaking down the norms of society and using his knowledge and creativity to better his life rather than working the mundane 9-5 job and hoping for a raise 20 years down the road.
