Ben Pasternak: The 18 Year Old Owner of a Virtual Marketplace For Teens

Ben Pasternak

Ben Pasternak is young man on a mission. This ambitious millenial from Australia founded the social network Flogg, at just 16 years of age. This isn’t just any social network platform though, Flogg is basically a mix between eBay and Facebook for young people.

Flogg allows teens to buy, sell and barter anything they own with other users in their network. The app was pretty much an instant hit when it launched in 2016, as it was briefly the no.1 trending app in the US. Despite Ben’s age, he already has several years of experience in the tech world. Ben started off building games at the age of 14, and he’s continued to innovate ever since.

His first two projects Impossible Rush and Impossible Dial went on to be downloaded millions of times and earned the young man some tidy profits. Ben is now focused on his most recent project Monkey, a platform that teenagers can use to help them make friends via video chats.
