19 year old Akshay Ruparelia set up an online estate agency called 'DoorSteps' during his school LUNCH breaks!! 😱
The young entrepreneur hired a call centre service to answer his company phone whilst he was in class! 👨🎓 In a year, the firm has sold £100 million worth of homes & is currently valued at £12 million! 💸
Ashkay started the company with £7k borrowed from relatives after getting the idea from the biography of RyanAir founder Michael O'Leary, & now employs 12 people - but Askhay still lives with his parents! 👪
Recently, £500k was invested into the company!
Akshay said: “If you can offer customers something at a price they can’t believe and you deliver what you say you will, you hook people in and your business will work"
He has put plans to go to Oxford Uni on hold & still hasn't got his first car!
