Inspiring stuff: Meet two talented tech entrepreneurs aged just 13

One of the most talked about parts of The Next Web Conference Europe 2013 was when two 13-year-olds took to the stage. Jordan Casey and Puck Meerburg show that age doesn’t have to be a factor when it comes to being a tech entrepreneur.

Jordan is the CEO of Casey Games, a mobile games company founded in January 2012. In this video he talks us through the business he’s created from his home in Ireland. He has games like Alien Ball VS Humans on the App Store.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Netherlands-based Puck Meerburg, meanwhile, is a talented coder who took us through his journey leading up to his most recent release, a game called CatStacker.

Got kids? Share these videos with them by way of inspiration. Otherwise, just watch them yourself and lament the fact that you probably weren’t as accomplished when you were that age.
