From a young age Yogi had a passion for computers. “The first thing I ever made was a one-page website about myself for my IT lesson. From then, I knew that I wanted to work with software.”

Yogi went on to set up his own software business in 2012 at the age of 16. He now runs the business part time whilst he studies for a BSc in Software Engineering.

Yogi thrives off pressure, which he finds brings the best out of him. “I love being my own boss. Working for myself allows me to have a control that I really value.”

Most of Yogi’s business is freelance work, designing the backend software for companies’ websites.

Recently he has started branching out into apps, which is where he sees the future for his company. He’s busy designing his first public app for outdoor activities enthusiasts.

He hopes to grow his business further and he’s ready for the challenge of taking it full time.
