Interview with 17-year-old Jared Kleinert as featured in Forbes, Fast Company, and TechCrunch

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Jared Kleinert

Let me start at the beginning from when I first heard the name ‘Jared Kleinert’. I remember because it was just before the TEDxDelrayBeach event and there was buzz around the name Jared Kleinert.  My friends were posting on Facebook, twitter and the I received my first PM (private message) saying “Jared Kleinert is here at Caffeine Spaces.”

A couple weeks later we finally had a chance to meet Jared and take him out for organic hot dogs. My take-a-way?  Jared is fearless, wise and humble.  Someone you want to work with and have on your ping pong table at work.  Great energy.  Hard worker.  WATCH!!!


Jared is working this summer in San Francisco.  Starting at the age of 15, Jared has already owned two companies.  NowIGetIt and Synergi.st.   He is also working on a book called 2 Billion Under 20 so watch out for that!   Jared is also the curator for the Boca Startup Digest has spoken at events in Miami, and is now a blogger for Tech Cocktail.

It didn’t take long to understand “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – for me too.  Pretty soon, Jared was another entrepreneur in the room that had a voice.  Age was soon forgotten.
