The Young Guns Of Technology [INFOGRAPHIC]

by . April 1st, 2015

You can be an entrepreneur at any age.

These exceptional entreps founded some of the biggest brands in tech, at a young age. If you’re still young, yes you still can succeed. If you’re older, don’t fret! There’s still plenty of time.

As a bonus, this infographic also has some great tips from famous entreps who founded their ventures at a young age!




  • Twitter’s Jack Dorsey isn’t very eloquent. Figures.
  • Failure really is part of the package.
  • Young successful entreps are the exception, rather than the rule. Most successful entreps are quite a bit older than most examples here
  • Of course, you have to balance your entrepreneurial optimism with keeping a roof over your head, and responsibilities to other people. 
  • Being responsible to your own self and having a supportive to fall back is one open secret for many of these entreps’ successes.
  • If needing to live on the streets and not being able to eat is the risk of failure, then would you really be that willing to fail as often?
  • “Jumping off a cliff and assembling an airplane on the way down.” is perhaps the most accurate analogy ever. You could however, read up and experience airplane assembly from other people’s flights and boondoggles before you actually jump yourself.
  • You can’t possibly know everything you need to, though.
