This teen entrepreneur continues to level up!
According to REVOLT, Philadelphia native Trey Brown has made another major move to expand his growing empire.
The 15-year-old CEO and founder of SPERGO, a boutique fashion collection for men, women, and children, is opening up his second store in Pentagon City Mall in Washington D.C. He also announced his partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers as part of their Buy Black Program.
“I started SPERGO three years ago, and I never would have imagined that I would be officially stamped a 76ers partner by my home basketball team,” said Brown in an interview with Baller Alert.
SPERGO’s first store was opened in his home of Philadelphia thanks to a $25,000 grant from Diddy when they appeared together on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2020.
In 2018, Brown used a $178 gift received on his 12th birthday to start SPERGO and now his mother anticipates that the brand will earn $2 million this year.
He launched the store to empower youth and to be an example that you can do great things at any age. The brand combines luxury and urban activewear with accessories, boxer briefs, hoodies, and sweatsuits.
During the appearance on “The Ellen Show,” Brown revealed that one of his biggest inspirations has been Diddy. He also shared that Diddy sparked his desire to open a business at an early age.
The gift of the $25,000 grant came as a surprise to Brown during the show and the two were able to bond over their spirit of entrepreneurship.
Now, Brown will continue his rise to the top with the expansion of his business which has not only allowed him to retire his mother but he’s also garnered more celebrity support.
Rappers like DaBaby and Meek Mill have also been seen sporting the gear.
