Yesterday, Brian Wong turned 21. Most people haven't accomplished much by that age—they're still figuring out their way through school, working a part time job, partying on weekends. They're not thinking about growing a business, building an empire, changing the world. Brian Wong is different.
The Vancouverite's entrepreneurial blood runs thick. The founder of Kiip, a mobile rewards network, is famous for being the youngest entrepreneur to ever raise venure capital funding for a startup when he was only 19 years old.
Kiip is also celebrating: this month, the startup turns one year old. It now delivers more than 35,000,000 reward impressions at a rate of five per second.
Brian resides in Silicon Valley these days, nuturing his budding company. At 21, he's already got one successful startup under his belt. We look forward to what the Canadian entrepreneur will do with the rest of his life.
