Jack Abraham has been writing software since he was 12. Initially he did it for ComScore, his fathers company. This became a global leader in digital market inelegance. It was also the grounding for Jacks future business venture.
As he grew older he felt that in this high tech age that we live in, it is crazy that we have to drive around or call before stores hand, to see if an item is in stock. So he decided to make things easier and bring them up to the new age.
Jack Abraham created Milo.com at the age of 21. The site is a search engine dedicated to searching the shelves of retailers in the users’ vicinity to show all products in stock at that precise moment.
Jack Abraham wants to make an impact on this world and believes Milo.com will help him do that. He believes this is the best time in history to start up a new business while you’re young. The next generation will bring a young and fresh perspective on modern business and the future will be lightning paced decisions and risks. It is a great time for innovation to flourish.
Studying all the time is the worst advice he ever got, he says ‘Reading about other peoples ideas is great but sometimes you just need to get out there and do something’.
Sometimes you learn more by doing rather than reading, but take on board advice you are given as there is not enough time in our lives to learn it all from our mistakes.
Jack says to all budding entrepreneurs, ‘Find mentors to listen to as you’ll be amazed by how much you don’t know.
Now 24 he is on course to gain a degree in Technological Entrepreneurship.
