Throughout his career, he has represented winners of The Voice Kids, Junior Eurovision, and Pop Idol, mentoring and managing their careers in music and entertainment.

Adam Power (@adampower96)
Adam Power started with no education or business experience, but he has managed to thrive in the business world within his industries. Labeled a failure throughout school, none of his teachers thought he would succeed. Today, he owns a digital marketing company that helps clients implement the right system to achieve their financial goals. Adam now travels the world and can enjoy his financial freedom while helping others, which is a huge passion of his.
Adam is passionate about what he does. After all, he deeply cares about lending a hand to people, especially those who are at the bottom because he can relate to being the underdog.

Adam has built his business from the ground up, working over 12 hours a day for the last 3 years; no one handed him anything, and it shows.

Mark Abraham (@markbabraham)
Mark Abraham’s success story is incredible, starting at the Shannon College of Hotel Management, where he studied Economics and International Hotel Management. Soon enough, he was invited to the Founder of the Future Fellowship, an exclusive invite-only community for future founders under 30. The mission? To build a world-class pool of entrepreneurs to build the high impact startups of the future.
Marks’ entrepreneurial spirit was always strong and once he was exposed to technology, he was hooked. Having spent his time in world-class hotels, Mark knew the hotel industry was the perfect place to make a huge impact. Soon enough, Shackle was born with the vision of becoming “Uber for hotels”. The app is the first fully integrated book, stay & explore travel app where people can book hotels and activities, check-in, check-out, open their room door, order room service, pay, and do anything they need right from their phone.
In other words, Mark has successfully automated people’s journey as hotel guests, thus making the experience a lot easier for everyone. Removing the need for a hotel front desk was a great challenge, but it has proven to be worth-while. The app was built during COVID-19 yet it has already pre-signed hotels from all over the world including cities such as London, New York, Miami & Dubai. It’s due to move from beta to full launch in Q1 2021 and it has all the characteristics to become the next European Unicorn.
Adam Cooper (@adam-cooper)
Adam Cooper’s journey wasn’t an easy one. Suspended from both his Primary and Secondary schools, he ended up with just 4 GCSE’s, which would be discouraging for many. He went on to become a qualified MOT tester and worked for 7 different vehicle repair companies, before realising he wanted more. In 2012, he started his property journey at Taylors Estate Agency where he started to really understand this industry.
In 2016, he joined City Homes Estate Agents as a letting’s negotiator and just three months later, he was running the branch and managing 5 employees. He spent two years in the company and in that short space of time, increased their portfolio from 80 to 245 managed properties. Finally, he decided to risk everything and start his own venture. He had finally found his true passion.
His entrepreneurial spirit rose to the occasion as he established Freedom Homes in December 2017. It all began in his spare room, but with hard work and dedication, Adam’s reputation in the industry started to grow. By November 2020, had 6 successful companies under his belt, had converted and flipped numerous HMOs and invested in multiple properties, generating a 6 figure profit. Their history continues to be written. He now has 5 employees, a build team of 13 + contractors, has 7 HMO projects in progress and a further 10 in the pipeline.
Adam completely transformed his life, going from an uninspired car mechanic to a business owner. He is extremely passionate about helping others realise their true potential and has a goal of opening an entrepreneur academy, with the aim to help over 1 million young aspiring entrepreneurs change the world.
Riccardo Aversa (@becomerichard)
Riccardo Aversa is a self-made millionaire at the early age of 21 years old. Though it may seem he had it easy, in reality, he started small just like any other online entrepreneur. But he had a bright idea and the commitment to make it come true. It all started in a small town in Italy, where he started doing online business at the age of 16. With nothing but his wit and the power of the Internet, he reached 7 figures at the age of 19.
Instead of spending his money on fast cars, which is what many would think a 19-year-old would do, he began investing. He put his money into ecommerce projects and he started his own consulting and coaching business with clients in the USA, Latin America and Europe. These brands now represent established 7-figure per year businesses.
In 2021 he’s ready to start a new adventure called Global Brands that creates ecommerce brands for daily life from scratch. Thanks to his experience, he has created a unique formula to test and scale global e-commerce brands using social channels ensuring the maximum experience for customers.
This powerful combination of greatest products and global social marketing defines the success of his brands.
This is a promising company to watch out for.
Raman Bhalla - (@raman_bhalla)
Raman Bhalla is an innovative and adaptable young man of 24 years. He's started multiple businesses from as young as 18, carrying the experiences with him as he went from strength to strength, developing his entrepreneurial spirit and sense for business along the way.
Raman currently operates a successful supply chain procurement business, specializing in optimizing logistics and product procurement for established supply chains. Pro-Source Direct was the result of Raman recognizing a gap in the UK production market, generating 6 figures within its first few months of operating and growing into international recognition. Leveraging the global economic situation of 2020 and cultivating the unique opportunities present in such an environment, Raman positioned Pro-Source to enable many manufacturing and supply businesses to streamline their processes saving money, time and ensuring some businesses were able to survive.
Not finished with logistics, Raman is set to innovate even further within the manufacturing and supply industries when he launches his new project; Pentagon Pro. Pentagon Pro is a 2-phase supply chain agency currently under development and set to launch in early 2021 that offers comprehensive analysis, consultation and implementation that connects products with people all under one roof.
Raman has been a whirlwind of innovation within the manufacturing sphere and is set to shake things up further in the coming year.
Adam Probert - (@adam__eats)
Adam Probert recognised early on in his entrepreneurial journey, that as businesses shifted to a more digital space, they were leaving behind the precise component that helped them gain success in the first place; human connection.
Embracing his innate passion for both people and food, Adam left his role in banking to support some of London’s most renowned restaurants with marketing and communications services.
By focusing on branding, content and community, Adam bridged the gap between on and offline, helping businesses humanise their brand and connect with their audiences on a personal level.
Not long into his new endeavour, Adam realised that he could replicate the success he’d been having with restaurants, across a plethora of industries and has since worked brands in the automotive, drinks, fitness, hotel, members club, and travel spaces.
After operating under the name of his infamous Instagram handle ‘Adam Eats’ since 2017, Adam officially launched his marketing agency, AXJ Media, in 2021.
AXJ Media’s mission is to help businesses be seen, heard, and valued; very much encompassing Adam’s focus of putting people at the heart of business.
Adam and his growing team couldn’t be more excited at the prospect of a 2021 filled with new challenges, impactful work, and most importantly... happy clients!
