Benjamin Garcia is an entrepreneur that started his journey into tech startups by dropping out of college at the age of 19 and joined other high school and college dropouts in the exploding tech scene in London There he co-founded 5 tech companies and has since built his life around being location independent yet still working with one of those startups as a Business Intelligence Officer. This startup has grown to over 100 employees but that’s only part of Benjamin’s story.
