Jaylen Bledsoe is a 15-year-old sophomore at Hazelwood West High School who started his own tech company that is now worth $3.5 million in just three years.
Jaylen focuses on IT consulting services, not just in his local area in St. Louis, but GLOBALLY.
This young man is doing it, doing it well, and is a phenomenal example of the entrepreneurial spirit.
Watch the video interview as Jaylen sat down with news anchor, John Pertzborn of KTVI FOX in St. Louis.
Now that Jaylen is valued at millionaire is he done? By no means. In the interview he speaks of a forthcoming venture within the hotel/travel industry to allow guests to find and book their rooms via a mobile device AND use that mobile device as the room key. BRILLIANT!
