(Ozark, MO) A Missouri high school student who started his own company two years ago is now a millionaire.

15-year-old Jaylen Bledsoe owns Bledsoe Technologies.

It’s a company that helps small businesses use new technology.

Bledsoe started the company when he was 13.

After two years, the business has grown from two employees to 150 and the company is now valued at $3.5 million.
