Meet the Kiwi whiz kids running a $200 million education empire
WHILE other Gen Ys are still finding their feet, these Kiwi whiz kids are running a global company worth more than $205 million.
Jamie Beaton, 21 and Sharndré Kushor, 22, have just closed a $39.5 million capital raising for the global online education business they started on Facebook and Skype. And they’re looking to expand their reach even further.
It all started when a teenaged Mr Beaton, whois academically gifted, realised that there was not enough support out there for kids who wanted to get into the world’s top universities.
