Nick D'Aloisio's just sold his company to Yahoo for tens of millions of pounds - and he's only 17 (way to make us feel good about ourselves).

But he's not the only young entrepreneur who's making it big in the world. There's Luke Hood, the 20-year-old who runs one of YouTube's top UK music channels UKF. Then there's Jamal Edwards, who's been described as the new Simon Cowell by Q magazine thanks to his SB.TV company.

Oh, and then there's Luke Thomas, Britain's youngest head chef.


It seems 2013 is the year of the young entrepreneur. So, if you're in any doubt of who to admire, here's who we're in awe of at the moment:
