23 year old Seb Hayes is a serial entrepreneur in the online video game sector.
Seb already has two successful websites with users in the millions. Like many others his age he has a passion for games, especially PlayStation, having bought all three consoles on the days in which they were released.
This spurred him on to develop his first website PSU.com which stands for PlayStation Universe. Driven by his desire to build ‘smart cutting edge video game content’ and networking sites that push the capabilities of the web, Seb has built a website in PSU.com which has over 230,000 members and over 1 Million unique visitors every month.
The website was originally developed in 2003 before a domain change to PSU.com in November 2006. At the same time they managed to acquire investment from Gorilla Nation Media, which are one of the largest ad sales firms in the US.
His second website Playfire.com is a community for gamers to discuss video games and network. Playfire was founded in 2007 a year after PSU.com. Seb Hayes managed to also complete his degree in Management Sciences from the University of Southampton between 2005 and 2008.
He had to show incredible determination and organisation to be able to complete his degree and develop two rapidly growing websites at the same time. He has successfully taken his passion and made a living from it. Seb has gone through the good days and the long tough days, but the most satisfying days come not when you lie around doing nothing, but when you have everything to do and you have done it.
