It looks like there is yet another young millionaire in town, and it has nothing to do with the showbiz or sports business, but rather, under the banner of technology. British teen Nick D’Aloisio has managed to join that exclusive club, being $30 million richer as he sold his mobile news app known as Summly to Yahoo for that sterling amount. that would rank Nick D’Aloisio as one of the world’s youngest self-made millionaires, and whether you think that all of that had to do with dumb luck, think again. Nick taught himself to write software at the tender age of 12, where the built the free iPhone app Summly three years after that.
Despite selling off Summly for that hand-summ amount (sorry, I could not resist that!), he will continue to work out of Yahoo’s office in London. Nick said, “To me, Yahoo is the best company to be joining right now considering it’s one of these classic World Wide Web companies. With new leadership from Marissa Mayer, Yahoo has a strong focus on mobile and product, and that’s the perfect fit for Summly.”
