Speaker Profile: Rich Martell
Young entrepreneur : Founder and CEO of Floxx
Rich started his first business at age 15. Far from being the ideal student, Rich was known as a rebel and risked being kicked out of both school and university.
After a wakeup call he went onto pass the computer science program he was studying at university and raised investment of $300,000 to fund his next project from a Facebook investor and a former Dragons' Den candidate at the age of 21.
Students will be inspired to start up their own businesses listening to Rich as he will share the highs and lows of running your own business. Rich is also able to mentor students on business ideas they may have.
“Rich Martell was an outstanding speaker and really related well to our young people and guests. His motivational words had great impact and the students literally queued up to speak to him after our Prize Giving Ceremony. What an excellent ambassador for youth entrepreneurship!” Dean Jefferys, Head of Aspiration House, The Albany School.
