SILICON VALLEY, CA – One teenager has raised the bar for all entrepreneurs out there!
Diane Keng may seem like your run of the mill Cupertino High School senior. The one thing that sets her apart from the rest of the senior class is that she has launched three start-ups. At the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco Keng pitched her MyWeboo.com idea.
The Web site, launched in March, helps teens manager their digital lives and social-networking identities in one place. The 18-year-old is now pitching the start-up to venture capitalists, and earlier this week presented her company at the Web 2.0 Expo.
“My age, my gender and my lack of experience don’t deter me from going after what I want for the company,” said Keng, who co-founded the venture with her 25-year-old brother, Steven.
“The thing is that you don’t tell them that you’re in high school until after they are impressed with you,” said Keng. “That’s kind of the idea, you walk in there and act like every other professional human being.”
MyWeboo.com is the true definition of a family business. Diane’s father, Brian Keng, fronted the siblings $100,000 to get it off the ground. He did so, however, after he asked some tough questions about the business plan. Diane admits that she isn’t making money just yet, but she’s convinced that she will once the start-up catches on.
