22-year-old entrepreneur specialising in influencer marketing and social media.
At 15, Influencer founder and CEO Ben Jeffries had already set up his first business called Breeze, it was a clothing company of modest success born off the back of a slang phrase him and his friends used to throw around. It was a small-time business, but it provided the spark of inspiration that led Ben to drop out of Bath University and build Influencer, one of the UK’s largest influencer marketing companies. He’s now 22.
Ben has led Influencer to become an industry-leading business in marketing’s hottest sector, raising their first round of investment on Crowdcube in under 24 hours. Ben has since partnered up with Youtube sensation Caspar Lee, as a co-founder and appointed him CMO whilst leading his team to close a further investment round for Influencer.
In 2017, he was labeled as one of the young entrepreneurs to watch by both Alphr, CMI and Startups.co.uk.
In 2018, he has established a reputation as one of the UK’s leading figures in Influencer Marketing and is a keynote speaker in May at the UK’s largest Business Show.
