Successful Companies founded by Young Entrepreneurs


December 16th, 2022 11:08


Age is nothing but a number! You can not measure success by years of age or experience alone. It is 2023 in one month!

Young entrepreneurs are taking over the world, one business at a time! They do not require a license or a high school diploma to turn their ideas into successful ventures.

So today, we will share the stories of 5 successful companies and businesses started by some remarkable young entrepreneurs. 

1. Mr Cory’s Cookies by Cory Nieves 

“Life’s too short to not eat a cookie!” 

With this catchy tagline and more, Cory started a cookie-selling business alongside his mother who is affectionately known as ‘Cookie Mom’ at just 6 years of age. 

What started with a dream to save enough to buy a car has today grown into a successful business that has gotten Cory invited to the Ellen DeGeneres Show and partnerships with the stalwarts of business worlds like Mercedes-Benz, Ralph Lauren, and Whole Foods.

2. ManCans by Hart Main

Mangan is an Ohio-based candle company started by Hart Main when he was 13 years old. The inspiration for the business came from the desire to buy a $1200 bike for himself. After seeing his sister sell the usual scented candles such as lavender and rose, Hart decided that there should be some ‘manly’ scents too.

And he started selling unique candles with scents of sawdust, bacon, Fresh Cut Grass, Campfire, etc. The venture instantly found a customer base. And today, with a partnership with the Beaver Creek Candle Company, this young entrepreneur’s candles are selling all over the United States.

3. Imagiroo LLC by Lily Born

When a young Lily saw her grandfather suffer from Parkinson’s disease and frequently spill his drink, this young entrepreneur decided to eliminate the problem and invented a three-legged cup known as the Kangaroo cup. This cup doesn’t tip and spill. 

With her father’s help, Lily visited Jingdezhen, the ceramics capital of China, and perfected her design with the help of professionals. 

Today, Lily has sold Kangaroo Cups worth more than $100,000 worldwide with the help of crowdfunding sites such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Lily’s entrepreneurial spirit tells us to have a solution-oriented approach to form a successful business and has been recognized as A Mighty Girl and has been featured on CC Heroes, CBS News, Business Insider, The Daily Mail, and more. 

4. Mo’s Bows by Moziah Bridges

Moziah Bridges, also known as 'Mo Bridges,' is a young entrepreneur and CEO of Memphis-based, family-run business Mo's Bows, which manufactures handmade bow ties.

Bridges were inspired to buy his first bowtie by his father's default of dressing smart for all occasions (even going about the house). When he began his search, he was disappointed because he noticed a gap in the market for high-quality, affordable bows. Mo's Bows begin. Moziah's company began on Etsy and now has an exclusive deal to feature the NBA logo on their products.

Bridges' Memphis-based company also sells neckties, pocket squares, and apparel in addition to bow ties.

5. Four Seasons Pastry by Vinusha MK

Vinusha, one of the youngest entrepreneurs on this list, started as a pastry chef at 10. After baking a cake for her mother’s birthday party, Vinusha knew her calling, and her parents were excited to support her.

“They took me to many entrepreneur sessions and told me stories of entrepreneurs. The thought of creating my own brand - with the help of my parents - took root in my mind, and that’s how Four Seasons Pastry was born,” says Vinsuha sells cupcakes inspired by the four seasons of India. It comes with a fondant snowflake for winter, an orange snowflake for summer, flowers for spring, and scattered orange leaves for autumn.


The stories of these young entrepreneurs demonstrate that entrepreneurship is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. It entails believing in the potential of ideas and pursuing them beyond the various stages of ideation to concept development. 

These young entrepreneurs were inspired by family, academics, social trends, and events; all have one thing in common- they identified and capitalized on an opportunity. That is what entrepreneurship is all about.
