When Christian Young chose Law as his preferred choice of career, little did he know that the world held something else for his future. In fact, the legal profession turned out to be the shortest span in his entire- highly interesting career. Christian Young is a true entrepreneur whose skills and guidance have helped many others to dream big.
After graduating from Occidental College, Christian Young went to Southwestern Law School to study Trial Advocacy and topped it up with a stint at the USC School of business.
He landed his first job in 2009 with Harris Tulchin & Associates, an international entertainment, multimedia and intellectual property law firm catering to the media industry. Mr. Young worked as an Entertainment Lawyer here for the next two years.
By 2011, Chris Young, an entrepreneur by heart, realized that he was not one to be bound by a routine legal job. Well acquainted with the entertainment industry by now, Christian Young’s first venture was an offbeat jewelry brand – BesoBeso Jewelers, with designer Jacqueline Brown. BesoBeso Jewelers was acquired by FD9 Group Inc. within two years of its inception, owing to its impressive distribution network which had grossed more than $500,000 within its first year with clients such as celebrities Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, and Disney star Tiffany Thornton.
This started his association with FD9 Group, where Mr. Young was made the President of the Fashion Incubator that later led to the unique wearable memory brand – Coordinates Collection. Under his guidance, Coordinates Collection emerged as the world’s greatest and first wearable memory.
Having worked with and successfully launched three start-ups, Christian Young was now ready to take the plunge into other areas of business. His next venture, Whipp Parking on Demand was an on-demand parking app facilitating drivers and parking officials across 100 test locations including 70 airports. Whipp was acquired by Republic Parking in May 2017.
While Christian Young is a qualified lawyer, at heart, he is an entrepreneur with a vision and an aspiration of not just creating successful business ventures but also helping other start-ups emerge as profitable business ventures by overcoming their initial hiccups.
To add to his repertoire, Christian is also an avid traveller, uses his photography, blogging, and marketing skills to offer guidance and information to influence potential travelers to visit undiscovered locations to make the best of their hard-earned vacations. He has also created and shot marketing campaigns for clients such as the Grand Hyatt and Ritz-Carlton chains.
Currently employed as a Resident Advisor at Amplify.LA since 2016, Christian Young is involved with many e-Commerce brands such as Iconery, Neon Beige, and Pinkandblue.com, guiding them towards continuous success. His unique strategic vision, combined with his unique brand of aspirational guidance, is the mark of a true entrepreneur, helping others to succeed.
