Cast your mind back to when you were 17-19 – chances are, your biggest concerns were making it home from school in time for your favorite shows and what chocolate bar you’d buy from the corner shop that day.
But for Aovin Mahmud, life couldn’t be any different.
When he was in primary school, Aovin, from Dhaka, started Learning Programming and creating android Apps.
Speaking to Aovin, the teen entrepreneur explained: “It’s about three things – faith, family and focus.”

He also got chance to work with Robi Axiata LTD’s platfrom BdApps which is the national app store of Bangladesh and became one the most successful developer and got the award of Youngest developer.

And while most kids would happily spend this cash on toys, PS4 or games, Aovin decided to save it for something special.
The following year, the 14-15 year old became interested in online businesses.
His mom Foyzur explained: “I thought he was a little too young to get the concepts.
“However, he came back to me and started speaking the KPI’s and the Blue Ocean Marketing that they speak in the Business.
“He asked me if he could open his bank account and from that moment, I knew he was serious.”
Aovin claimed: “I started off with $1,500 and in three years, I’d turned that into x3 to x4”
