Hello dear virtual friends, how are you today? There is a madhouse in Serbia at the moment, the Government of Serbia says that it is introducing a tax on all the earnings we make over the Internet, and that is a small tax, but a huge one, almost 50% of the earnings. This can be reduced if we open a company of our own through which we would work, but again a good part of the earnings would be taken by the state. That's nonsense, isn't it?
And so while looking at our opportunities on the internet, I came across a kid entrepreneur who really thrilled me with his story and I wanted to share it with you.
It’s, in fact, about a kid making millions of dollars out of his dorm room! Many entrepreneurs have that moment in which they realize that they have come across something very big. For Marsin Klecinski, it happened so discreetly, from the student room he ran a business working on antivirus software. Although his startup Malverbeits existed for less than a year at the time, it was already gaining a good reputation in the world of cybersecurity. Marsin was only 18 at the time and could barely balance business and student life at the University of Illinois.
The story that was very striking to me as I read it was how he had a big problem analyzing the latest computer virus when a completely white page came out on my monitor with the message "You were kicked out of the school network because of a virus on your computer". The school network discovered that he had a virus on his computer, but they did not know he had it on purpose. He called the University’s IT department, and they sent him a kid who was younger than him to “fix the matter” for him. The guy sat down at the computer, looked around and told him how he just blew up :) And then in front of his eyes he logged in to his website and downloaded his antivirus. Marsin said nothing, just stood behind him and watched him fix his computer, with his own software.
In 2012, Marsin graduated with a degree in computer science, and his Malverbytes were already a company that earned several million dollars a year at the time. During all that time, none of his professors had any idea what was taking so much of his time and affecting his bad grades. His firm today has a turnover of more than $ 126 million and millions of customers from all over the world.
Born in Poland in 1989, as a teenager he was obsessed with video games, accidentally caught a computer virus, so he studied everything he needed to know about them on internet forums and from books for beginners. It was officially launched by Malverbeits in January 2008.
The company grew rapidly, so he estimated that going to college in September of the same year would only slow him down, but of course his mother, like everyone else, had different plans for him. He told his mother “I don’t think I’m going to study,” but fifteen seconds later he was packing his things together with his mother for his college. :)
What worried his mother the most was that her teenage son started a business with a man in his thirties, Bruce Harrison. The two have been writing software together for more than a year, after they first started talking on antivirus forums. Marsin and Bruce hadn't actually met face to face at the time. Bruce was a computer lover from Massachusetts, and Marsin lived in Chicago. They did not see each other live until Malverbytes was more than a year old. Bruce is now the head of the research team, and still lives and works on the east coast of America, and Marisn is headquartered in Silicon Valley.
The company now has more than 750 employees, as well as branches in the Republic of Ireland, Singapore and Estonia. Since 2014, she has earned 80 million in investment funds.
The data from Malverbytes is that their software performs 187 million virus scans every month for viruses for both individuals and legal entities, and is installed more than 247,000 times every day.
Marsin is 29 years old today and says that his youth served him as a great forerunner, so he encourages other talented teenagers to start companies.
This was an easy inspirational story, and I sincerely hope that at least some of us will be paved for this kind of success, now that we are forced to become entrepreneurs. I also hope that this post left an impression on you just as it did on me. I wish you a nice rest of the day. Greetings to all of you @Jigglyspy
