‘I started with only $50 of pocket money’: Meet the entrepreneur, 22, who started his first business at 12 and is now launching a freelancing website

A 22-year-old entrepreneur who started his first business at 12 is now launching a new freelance business that he hopes will rival one of the biggest of its kind in the world.

A 22-year-old entrepreneur who started his first business at 12 is now launching a new freelance business that he hopes will rival one of the biggest of its kind in the world.

Adam Stone has already raised $545,000 in seed funding in the US and Australia for Speedlancer, which he hopes will take on skilled freelancing site Freelancer.com, the Canberra Times reports.

‘I wanted to make outsourcing effective for start-ups and small businesses who don’t have access to a HR manager or the time to go through and recruit the talent that they need,’ he said.

‘We hire talent wherever the best talent is,’ he said, referring to a customer service team in Bangladesh and a development team in Brazil.

Stone got invaluable experience in the freelancing industry while running his previous business.

He ran the business while attending high school and later doing his university studies.

Mr Stone started his first business when he was 12 years old, and started it all off with only $50 of pocket money, and he did not take a penny from his parents until opening up the initial seed-funding round for Speedlancer.\'I started with only $50 of pocket money\': Meet the entrepreneur, 22, who started his first business at 12 and is now launching a freelancing website

He claimed that his last business was an e-commerce platform that made a six-figure profit despite him only working 10 minutes a week because he was still studying.

But the sky is the limit for the young entrepreneur with investors already interested in his new project from the U.S. and Australia.
