19 years old Brian Wong is the founder of kiip.me, a mobile advertising platform that is bridging the mobile and gaming worlds.
Before starting kiip, Brian working at digg in business development, he is also the CEO of followformation, a tool for Twitter users that would like to make sense out of following.
The tool helps simplify the first few steps by dividing the top people on Twitter by categories, and automating the entire following process.
Users are able to choose their categories of interest and preview the people in these categories. Users can also create a custom category if it is not on the current top list.
Brian is also a global inspirational speaker and has spoken at the Tweethouse in Los Angeles and in Austin, TEDx Miami, the F5 Expo in Vancouver along with Malcolm Gladwell, Digital Hollywood LA, the Youth Marketing Conference in Singapore, TagMe Medellin in Colombia, OpenWebAsia in Malaysia, and was recently lauded in the Vancouver Sun as a “a budding internet visionary”.
He was also recently a recipient of the Top 20 under 20 awards in all of Canada.
And also, he is a Bachelors of Commerce graduate from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia after skipping four grades on his way.
In a recent post on techcrunch, he has been able to get True Ventures partner Phil Black who has invested $200,000 in Kiip.me.
Brian certainly has everything in front of him; we will be waiting for the launch of kiip.me
