Jack Kelly graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2018 with a degree in Accounting and Finance and he is the co-founder of social media influencer agency Havick Talent. The start-up helps clients in North America and currently operates from Bogota in Colombia. Jack also runs another venture organising South American football tours for US tourists.
The business is actually based in Los Angeles but I chose Bogota as it's a favorable timezone and the business is heavily influenced by Latin America. I was working for another start-up in the US during lockdown before teaming up with a colleague to create Havick Talent, with clear guidance as a Female First influencer management agency which has a strong set of core values including prioritising our clients rather than profit maximisation.
For me being an entrepreneur is about finding joy in the little things. For example, during a recent bank holiday I worked all day, but at other times you [have the freedom to] take time out to do important things for yourself and its that intangible value of managing yourself that contributes to happiness and purpose which is something I used to lack in a corporate job.
I can also say with certainty that B-Enterprising was a driving force during my university years that gave me the confidence to pursue entrepreneurship and equip me with a broad range of skills that I have utilised to build the business.
