Andrew Thompson, or how he is known by his professional name, Andrew Fashion, is nothing special. An entrepreneur since college, Andrew had a knack for the business world. He dropped out of high school before he was 18 and within a year of becoming a multimillionaire.
The year is 2005. MySpace is all the rage with teens and young adults. The only problem is that the site doesn’t have a lot of flair, a way to individualize your specific page to personalize it. Thompson has created a website, MySpaceSupport.com. It was the first of its kind, and before long ad revenue was bringing in around $ 100,000.00 per month through Yahoo.
It went on for a while. Like most things with social media, MySpace came and went. Thompson switched his interests to cryptocurrency, specifically Bitcoin. He turned a modest investment into several million dollars. It was fun for a while, but transactions with Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, in general, were not to his liking. Andrew turned to another interest again: building apps.
He joined a start-up, Evolve, his first. The app was actually part of hugely famous Instagram star and workout guru Sommer Ray, all because of Andrew. Along the way, he raised another modest $ 1.7 million for the app.
Today Andrew lives modestly in Los Angeles, California, biding his time on his latest project, Gypsee. A travel app, Gypsee is set to completely change the world of travel and adventure. He has tentative plans to launch on the Apple platform sometime after the start of the new year. His goal, says Andrew, is to plan an adventure with friends all over the world. Within six hours, everyone arrives – regardless of their initial location in the continental United States – and everything for adventure is covered, from the hotel to the activities. Subscribers only need to make simple payments before leaving.
We’re all waiting to see what Gypsee and Thompson produce next.
