12 young British tech stars aiming to change the world
Techworld goes on the hunt for the next Mark Zuckerberg
An enthusiastic army of teenagers and young 20-somethings are largely to thank for the tech movement that has swept across the UK over the last few years.
Inspired by the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been made by the likes of Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Bebo's Michael Birch, Snapchat's Evan Spiegel, and Box's Aaron Levie, a new generation of talented young tech-types are looking to turn their start-ups into the next big thing.
Techworld asked some of the leading start-up experts in the UK to nominate who they believe are the most promising entrepreneurs under the age of 25.
Those that feature were nominated by the following people:
Duncan Peters (23)
Duncan is the founder of an app called eRipple that aims to connect entrepreneurs with potential co-founders, advisers and support groups. For example, the app could be used to connect an entrepreneur with business development skills to a talented coder. On his LinkedIn profile, the former Bath University student states that he is aiming to globally connect 100,000 budding Mark Zuckerberg's and Richard Branson's.
