EARLY ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS
After receiving a grant from the Prince’s Trust at 22 (following a career as a hip hop dancer), Warren started a successful European music and clothing distribution company. Next he became the director of a global stationery and accessory business working with Disney and Nickelodeon, where he grew the business from a $5 million to $30 million company in a 5-year period, selling to over 30 countries, and achieving $1 million sales in one month.
Since then, Warren has won various industry awards and co-founded two IT companies. The first, an ecommerce platform that received £150,000 investment via the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), valuing the business at £1m within two years. The second, an online learning platform, teaching people how to setup and use social networks for their business.
