Adnan started up online selling wristbands on eBay when he was 15. It was then that he figured out the world of online commerce and soon after, he became interested in creating websites.
In February 2006 (aged 16), he started up a website called Blogtrepreneur (www.blogtrepreneur.com). For 2 years, he built the site up and learnt about internet marketing, website monetisation and search engine optimisation.
The site started to make 4 figure profit levels per month and in December 2008; the site was acquired by US Company, YoungEntrepreneur.com Inc.
Soon after in January 2009, he founded Car Throttle (www.carthrottle.com) which is based on his passion for performance cars.
Currently, the site receives over 75,000 page views per month and profitable, and currently have advertising contracts with some of the largest auto insurance companies in the UK.
Perhaps what is the coolest thing is that I have got to review some very sweet cars, including a Lamborghini Gallardo, Porsche 996 Turbo and VW Scirocco! He says
Adnan currently works also with a team of 5 part-time writers based globally who help to contribute to news articles and who also receive press cars from manufacturers due to their relationships with companies such as Ford, Infiniti, Acura, Audi, Nissan and Volkswagen.
Finishing off our discussion he said:
The business was largely grown out of my University room as I am a student at UCL.
Due to my passion for entrepreneurship, I managed to become elected as President of UCL Entrepreneurs. Alongside my committee, I was responsible for growing the Society from 30 to over 150 paying members boosting us into the Top 10 Societies List. We also co-organised the 2010 National Student Enterprise Conference alongside NACUE and UCL Enterprise.
