At only 26-years-old, Freddie Figgers is the CEO of a $2.2 million Florida telecommunications company.
According to a 2014 study by Insight Research Corp, telecommunications services revenue worldwide will grow from $2.1 trillion in 2014 to $2.4 trillion in 2019.
This great news means there is money to be made in this industry. However, African-Americans are not the ones making it.
Figgers Communication hopes to change that.
In addition to being a successful business mogul, Figgers is an inventor, patent holder for four inventions and a software designer who strives for perfection.
The 26-year-old even achieved all of this without finishing college.
