 9. Nick D’Aloisio

Nick is a self-taught programmer that started out his education on the subject with a copy of C for Dummies and How-To videos on the internet. Once he became proficient with programming, Nick launched his first app when he was only 12 years old, and from there developed a new app every time that school would let out for summer. Eventually he developed an app called Trimit when he was only 15, which would condense lengthy articles into short summaries ranging from 1000 to 140 characters. A Hong Kong billionaire saw the potential and gave Nick $300,000 in venture capital to perfect the app. This re-working would go on to be called Summly, an app that Yahoo! paid $30 million for. In addition, Nick was also given a position in the company.

8. Fraser Doherty

Fraser laid the groundwork for his $1.2 million dollar SuperJam company by selling his Grandmother’s jam recipes at farmer’s markets and delis. As time went on, Fraser put his own tweaks on the recipes and even developed ways to make jam entirely from fruit. Word began to spread around Scotland and Fraser eventually struck a deal with the Waitrose supermarket chain to sell his jam through 184 of their stores. The exposure eventually grew into a 2,000 store market, and spanned to other countries as well. The SuperJam name has even gained status from the National Museum of Scotland as an “Iconic Scottish Brand.”

4. Robert Nay 

Robert Nay is a bit of a prodigy. At 14, Nay had no coding experience. Nay was a self-taught code writer that learned the old-fashioned way: at the library. In one month, Nay already had 4,000 lines of code written for his game Bubble Ball. Once finished, Nay put the app online for free with Apple. In two weeks the game had over a million downloads and Bubble Ball would eventually dethrone the insanely popular Angry Birds as the most downloaded game in the free app store.
