Troy Douglas, current Co-Founder Of Nexba and Taurus intern and TaurusFastTrack© alumni spoke about his experience during a recent interview with OnyaMagazine:
After high school I went on to study my Bachelor of Communications & Bachelor of Law. During a tutorial a guest lecturer, Sharon Williams CEO of Taurus Marketing, really opened my mind to the world of business. I went up to her after the lecture and asked if she’d consider me as an intern. I offered to be an intern for a week – I had a mortgage at 19 so wasn’t in a position to work for free!
I went on to work with Sharon for nearly 3 years before I thought I should use my degree and give the law a crack, so I got a job as a paralegal with Allen & Overy for a short while. After 4 years of University and being inspired by incredible mentors at such a young age, turning 21 I felt confident enough to jump into business with Drew and we kicked off Nexba! I truly believe there’s never a ‘right age’ to become a founder. When the idea is there, you make the rest work
