Hyderabad, November 28, 2017: Hamish Finlayson, a 13-year-old wiz kid from Australia, has become the centre of attraction with his innovations in gaming and development of apps.

Taking part in the second Global Entrepreneurship Summit, the teenager appeared composed and upbeat in his sphere of activity–game development and apps.

“My work in gaming and applications was liked and I was invited to be part of GES held in the US two years ago when I was 11 years. Here I am attending the second GES,” he said.

The kid, who took to app development when he was just seven, is keen on developments relating to nature and environment. His works include LitterbugSmash, an iPad App, whose objective is to keep the sea plastic free and another app Keep Calm and Save Turtles. Finlayson is also working in the area of healthcare relating to autism.

His father, Finlayson says, “We are proud of what he does and his focus is on innovation. He started this when he was in grade 3. In the 7th grade now, we are looking at more innovations.”

The start up of Hamish Finlayson from Townsville in Queensland, Australia, is named Moonshot Industries Global Pty Ltd.

Asked if he was looking for funds, he says, “No, my focus is on app development for now.”

He is taking part in the summit as an entrepreneur.
