America's Top Five Young Entrepreneurs

Oct 28, 2011

Remember when we told you about Bloomberg Businessweek’s seventh annual entrepreneurial roundup of the top entrepreneurs age 25 or younger with the most promising businesses? Well, 5,000 readers have voted since the competition’s inception, and Bloomberg has tallied the results. These winning entrepreneurs have accomplished some amazing feats, like creating innovative software that will help students and teachers collaborate remotely or developing a produce distribution business that offers clients an online marketing service. These innovations already have had a huge impact on our country by creating job opportunities and simplifying our way of life.

An article from Businessweek documents the top 5 entrepreneurs and their winning businesses:

1) scoreAscore: 11.8 percent. Jordan Passman founded this online music brokerage business in May 2010 to connect composers with music buyers who need scores for film, commercials, video games, or other productions. Passman, who runs the business solo in Los Angeles, expects revenue of $250,000 this year.

2) ThinkLite: 8.3 percent. Babson College students Dinesh Wadhwani and Enrico Palmerino started ThinkLite in 2009 to help businesses save money with custom, energy-efficient lighting systems. With clients including AT&T and Kodak, they expect $3.5 million in revenue this year.
