Anand Shimpi could make just about anyone feel like a failure. The 17-year-old high school senior is creator and CEO of an Internet company that reviews computer hardware and is on track to bring in more than $1 million in ad revenue this year. Between school and 60-hour workweeks, he manages to study enough to be an honors student and play enough to have a close circle of friends and a steady girlfriend.
He goes to corporate VIP parties in Las Vegas, and comes home from school to find urgent messages from Intel computer executives. He just moved into a bigger house to make room for his business, and his mom is one of his 15 employees. He drives a $49,000 BMW Z3 convertible to Enloe High School in Raleigh.
USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and the Boston Globe have all mentioned him. Fortune magazine recently featured him. In its upcoming issue this month, Atlanta-based YoungBiz magazine will name him the country's top young entrepreneur.
