MEET JAYLEN Bledsoe, a 17-year-old entrepreneur who turned his tech startup into a multi-million-dollar enterprise in just a couple of years – without even taking any time off class.

Jaylen Bledsoe of Hazelwood, Missouri, founded Bledsoe Technologies, an information technology consulting company, when he was just 12 years old.
Since then, Bledsoe Technologies has grown into a global enterprise worth around $3.5 million, KTVI-TV reports.

The startup, which now has about 150 contract employees around the world, helps companies with website design, graphics and other technology consulting services.

By 15, he was considered a millionaire and said the guiding principle to his success is his willingness to take risks.

“There’s nothing you can do as a minor that will shoot you down for too long,” he told KTVI-TV. “Because you’re young, you can always jump back up and keep going.”
