While most seven-year-olds are playing in the streets or playing video games or iPads, Connor Zamary is starting a company. The second-year elementary school student created the iPhone app Toaster Pop, a game that basically consists of spreading jam and butter on a virtual loaf of bread just out of the toaster. The app costs just $0,99.
“He looked for investors, made his own PowerPoint presentation, filled out the paperwork to start the company and held conferences with developers from the west coast of the United States,” Craig Zamary, Connor's father, said in an interview with the US website CNET.
Craig said his son picked a developer to build the app and tested it with friends and family to see if it worked as it should. As he is a minor (and only a child), Connor gets help from his father to manage the company. “My dad was telling me about how a toaster works, as I've never seen one before. And the idea came to create the app, where the toast jumped out of the toaster, fell on a plate and you spread jam on it”, said the boy.
Connor said the hardest part of launching his own app was meeting investors. “I was nervous,” he confessed, adding that he is already working on version 2.0 of the software. But the Zamary's entrepreneurial spirit doesn't stop there. Business Insider also claims that Connor's younger sister Annabelle, 6, also has an iPhone app idea, and her brother intends to be the investor in the program.
