Jason Brian is the 23 year-old auto insurance industry entrepreneur and founder of AutoCricket.com
Autocricket.com enables consumers to meet all of their automotive needs with hundreds of databases to give consumers the best possible rate on their auto insurance. A one-stop shop for bargain hunters.
Jason described himself as a typical lemonade kid who was always extremely self motivated and independent with a specific goal in mind: success.
From a young age, he knew and understand he took to have the luxuries of life: Hard work and dedication.
After high school, Brian dived into the car business and quickly saw himself moving up in ranks, from sales, to marketing and finally into a management position. After realising the need for an online search site for consumers looking for auto insurance, Brian left his position at the car dealership company to start AutoCricket.
He used less than $10,000, money he had saved up whilst working to fund his startup, he launched the website in 2008.
Six months after launch, the site attracted the attention of two investors who invested $250,000 after realizing the potential growth of the company. The site generated $1.2 million in revenue in 2009, when Brian was 22. In 2010 it did $6 million and the company is looking to surpass $10 million in revenue within the next two years.
Autocricket.com makes money by selling customers' information to dealers and manufacturers, which could market to customers directly.
Following the success of AutoCricket.com, Brian has launched Leadbeaver.com — angled more towards insurance agents, rather than consumers. In October, he launched an independent insurance agency, CB Insurance, along with 877-FOR-INSURANCE.
He said "Basically, I want to have all angles of the industry covered. Consumers and agents won’t need to go anywhere else to find what they need".
