Marvin Andrews began toying with entrepreneurialism around the time he got bored of his toys. Aged 14, he set about asking companies to sponsor his online gaming competitions. Coca-Cola passed, as did Intel, Microsoft and Nike. Finally one caring gatekeeper took pity on him and convinced her boss to cut him a cheque for £250.
He has failed many times since then. Most noticeably in interior design for student rooms, launching an online gaming magazine and selling male bracelets. Fortunately amongst those failures have been a couple of inspiring successes.
Now 22, Marvin splits his time between his studies in Cheltenham, his entrepreneurial activities and his freelance work for a variety of newspapers/magazines. He doesn’t have all the answers, hardly any in fact. He’s only got questions, an internet connection, and now, you lot.
