We hear a lot about things on the news from politics to news about the coronavirus but rarely do we ever read about the individuals behind the news. Today I’d like to introduce the 3 bright teenagers behind the incredibly fast-growing Business Blurb. Brendan Cox, Devin Caherly, and Faiz Imran are the three entrepreneurs behind this innovative media company. Founded in 2020, Business Blurb is an American business and entrepreneur e-magazine specializing in social media content. Their publication features original articles on topics like business, entrepreneurs, leadership, lifestyle, money, and technology. But that’s not what’s unique about their company. Not only was Business Blurb the first media company to conquer Tik Tok but they were the first news site to introduce contributor verification. In an interview with TB Magazine, Imran said “We are also the first news platform to offer verified contributors on our platform. It served as a credibility tool and it already has quickly been replicated by other news and media companies.”
The company’s rapid growth has been astronomical and even Forbes covered the teens’ endeavor. According to Forbes, Business Blurb received “over 20,000,000 monthly impressions within one month of inception.” Business Blurb’s growth has been exponential since their launch. Cox told us, “we are unique because we cover interesting stories that deserve to be told but aren’t mainstream enough for major league news outlets to pick up on.” Along with being recognized by Forbes and other major news outlets, Market Watch named them “The Fastest Growing Entrepreneurial Media Company of 2020.”
With over 300,000 Instagram followers these founders have definitely built a platform and may even become this generation’s Forbes if they keep up.
In a TB Magazine interview, Cox and Caherly also mentioned how they are leveraging social media, “Tik Tok is truly the next big thing. We were the first entrepreneurial media company to leverage the platform and use it to our advantage” Caherly said. Brendan explained, “we are building more than a news company, Business Blurb stepped up the bar for other online media companies as we leverage every aspect of social media to our advantage.” The growth behind their company has been impressive and I hope to continue to watch these driven entrepreneurs innovative within the media industry.
