Erik Finman bought 100 bit coins, which is electronic currency, when they were only worth $12 each, but now there worth $1200 EACH so he got over $100,000. So he started a website called Botangle.com which allows teachers to teach you in any subject. Then he started a company called "intern for a day" we're you can be a intern at a new company and you can actually get a job at the company! He did a Ted talk
