Director in the United Kingdom
I have been very lucky with the business decisions and choices I have made. When I was 16, I didn’t have the support or resources available when starting my business. I aim to change this for young entrepreneurs.
I want to give entrepreneurs the support they deserve.
I am a very busy ‘business owner’ growing my own companies whilst reaching out to other young entrepreneurs who have a dream about starting a business. I have run various events in Colleges and Universities and have even been a judge in a ‘Dragons Den’ style national business competition.
I founded a web design studio in 2006 from my bedroom at my parents house. I didn’t have any funding, support or a loan to fall back on. I started my business with just £2.99 in the bank, which went towards my first domain name. In the early years, my business naturally grew through hard work, recommendation and my own choices. That business, Damteq® is now a Top 50 Digital Marketing Agency in the UK and we continue to help over 300 businesses using our proven marketing strategies.
In addition to running my Digital Marketing Agency (amongst other companies) I launched my first investment project, a national driving school franchise. The Driving School, BIG Driving School, is currently growing in the UK and actively looking for new instructors to join our team of fully qualified instructors.
Although I am very busy running my businesses, I remain grounded and focused and aim to help other young people that have great ideas and who are ambitious enough to follow the same journey that I have been through.
