Loman set up Eurogamer at 16 as a place for games fanatics to discuss and review the latest releases online. He soon realised the business potential of the site he created with his brother. In bringing together a group of avid gamers, it was an advertiser's dream – and they soon flocked. Finishing his A-levels, Loman took a gap year to develop the business. He's now taken six.

Based in Brighton, Eurogamer is used by 2.4 million people every month, employs 22 staff and turns over £1.2m. Recent diversification into events and internet TV should see this figure rise significantly next year, helped by European expansion through franchising and joint ventures. The site will run in eight languages by the end of the year.
