At 12 years old, William couldn't believe that it would be 3x more expensive buying a computer from the electronic store compared to buying the exact same components and building it himself. He turned this hobby into a business and by 13 had registered his first company, a Direct-to-Consumer Micro Brand selling custom built computers to his friends and neighbours.
Soon after, he started several other businesses and at the age of 15 dropped out of school to pursue running his businesses full-time. Since then, William has founded, owned and ran several profitable businesses - including DealDash (taking it from $0 to $60M a year of revenue), Total Trivia (taking it from $0 to $10M a year of revenue) and Galton Voysey. In 2013, William became the youngest ever winner of the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year National Prize for Finland. In 2016 he graduated from Harvard Business School's 3-year OPM program, becoming the youngest ever graduate from the program.
"We are putting together an incredibly bright and energetic team to tackle possibly the biggest opportunity of our lifetimes - the complete overhaul of how consumer products are distributed, marketed and sold.
Galton Voysey will play an important role as we lead the shift from the current predominant way of distributing consumer products through vast, inefficient supply chains riddled with 3rd party middlemen and gatekeepers towards a brighter future of brands going Direct-to-Consumer.
Our generation is exceptionally lucky to have been given the awesome responsibility of transforming such a large and fundamental part of our economy. In the end, consumers will benefit from lower prices and far richer customer experiences than we've ever imagined possible."
