Nick Cohen, aged 22 from Glasgow, started running his first IT repair business at the age of 13. By 19 he had formed his company PC Repair and opened his second repair centre by the time he was 21. After selling the business at the ripe old age of 22, he went on to launch an award-winning IT company which now provides support to businesses of all sizes across West Central Scotland.
But he’s also passionate about helping other young people in business and supports secondary pupils as a business advisor for the same course that he completed; the Young Enterprise Scotland Company Programme. He has clocked up countless hours speaking in schools and colleges around the UK and is also the youngest ever Board Director for the Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce.
His latest project is the innovative ‘buywhatsliked.com’ of which he is CEO. This online social shopping network has already proving popular across social networking sites before it has even been officially launched.
