SPP#47 Harry Sanders: Perseverance is essential, but know when it's not working.

SPP#47 Harry Sanders

Meet this week’s awesome studentpreneur: Harry Sanders, 18 y.o.,  High School student at University High School and  founder of StudioHawk in Melbourne, Australia.

In Year 9  Harry got the opportunity to do a different curriculum for a term. From that experience he landed an internship at 15 and then a year later decided to go on his own. To find customers he had to be inventive. He started doing mock-ups of websites based on logos of companies, and showed them to the business owners…. and it worked very well. Now at 18 Harry has just finished high school, keep an eye on this young studentpreneur.
