  1. Wow Ben, These guys are really inspiring. They make me wonder What the hell was I doing when I was at their age. I had read about only a few of them, specially Gloson and Glen Allsop but the others I had never heard of.

  2. Great list bro! These guys are awesome! They really worth being on the list! Thanks so much for sharing. Rock on.

  3. I know a couple of these young webmasters. I like visiting their websites, it just inspires me. :)

  4. It is inspiring to see some of the next generation of entrepreneurs already getting their feet wet before they are even of legal age in most countries. These are all people who are “focused” in building a venture while the vast majority their ages are still goofing off and haven’t a clue as to what they want to do in life yet.

  5. Ben, what an inspiring post. And it’s amazing to see they are 21 or under. Glad to see Gloson make the list!

  6. Wow… all these guys/girls actually make me feel quite jealous… Former head of Business Dev in Digg.. WOW. That’s just incredible. I’m sure some of these people dun have profitable businesses yet, but to even start a startup before you’re 21 is incredible in my eyes. More ppl in this world need to be like these kids!

  7. Amazing stuff. Very impressed with the two boys ROBERT and STEPHEN. When I was at 14 I didn’t even thought likes these boys. Superb.

  8. It is definitely inspirational to see so many young people being successful today.

    I follow Glen A. for some time now and he is a genius. I even used that app of his and it helped me get so much Twitter exposure to my blog.

    Wonderful list!

  9. Seems to me these guys all have a lot going for them. Its good to see that they’re getting an early start on their careers. Starting early and setting yourself up makes it a lot easier in your twilight years.

  10. Hopefully, my son who is 2 years old now, will make into the list.

  11. They are so young and have achieved so much which other people just think of.
    Inspiring post.

  12. Wow, so many young entrepreneurs… makes me feel old! LOL. I love seeing young people getting in on stuff like this. It makes me have better hope for our future, haha!

  13. Hey Ben,

    Wow, so young and so successful! I can’t even remember what I was doing at their age. Makes me look back and want to kick myself. If I knew then what I know now I would hope that I would have been in a much better place. But, live and learn.

    Thanks for informing me of these go getters. I’m going to have to send this post to my nephew! He needs some direction.


    • Hey Adrienne,

      Don’t worry about it, you can only live once, there’s no going back anyways :) Glad to hear that you’re sending this to your nephew.

  14. Posts like this make me realize how possible it really is to make your way in this world if you just get off your behind and get to trying some things. Great way to start a day seeing other successful people who didn’t start with a silver spoon.

  15. Now, this is a list that I could show to my two boys. This is very inspirational and should encourage children to aim high. I hope this would help them make use of their skills, talents, intelligence and knowledge to reach their goals.

    Great job, Ben. :)

    – Wes –

  16. Great list bro.But the list is incomplete without your name.

  17. Great list of inspirational entrepreneurs too. They are all young but they have done great jobs so far. I feel a bit shame as I am now 31 years old but I have not done a lot of things yet :-)

  18. Thanks for sharing this. They are great and you are wonderful ^^

  19. Hi Ben,

    A great pleasure to be mentioned me here, and for me, there are a lot to learn from other young entrepreneurs as well.

  21. These guys and girls are amazing!
    To be able to develop an app at 14 or 15 is unbelievable!

  22. Wow…Very inspiring…these young guns are not just techie but also have business acumen..I’m amazed. Would love to hear more such stories.

  24. Hi Ben,

    Nice to see you. Sorry I’ve only been able to see this now because I’ve been very with school and I’ve been staying in the hostel, so no internet connection.

    Thank you so much for including me in your list. I really appreciated and honored. :)

    Kudos to the other young entrepreneurs who made it to the list. It’s good to have some inspiration. You, Ben, are also a very inspirational young entrepreneur and I respect you very much. :)

  25. Just stumbled here via the Teen Business Forum after watching a YouTube vid of Ben Lang’s eBay business. Have to say I’m both impressed and inspired by all these fresh-minded entrepreneurs.
