Wunderkind Teen Makes Millions for his App!

Nick d’Aloisio, 17, a British/Australian programming whiz kid, created a content-shortening app that sparked the interest of Yahoo. Although they didn’t disclose how much they are shelling out for the app, it is estimated to be around $30 million.

Nick claimed he was inspired to create the app out of frustration while hitting the books for a history exam two years ago. Fed up with scrolling through Google results and separate sites to find information, he eventually created a prototype of the app that separates news stories into chunks of readable text on smartphone screens.

As if all of this wasn’t a dream come true, Nick also has a job before even graduating high school at the esteemed company. If you or anyone you know has an invention idea and needs help, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
