Trey Brown, a 15-year-old entrepreneur, recently opened up his second SPERGO store location in the Pentagon City Mall, Washington D.C..
SPERGO was started in January 2018 with Brown’s birthday money of $178. Brown wanted to empower youth and be the example that you can do great things at any age.
Brown’s brand ‘SPERGO’ combines luxury and urban activewear with sweatsuits, hoodies, boxer briefs, and accessories.
Not long ago, in June of 2020, Brown went on The Ellen Show, whereupon his arrival, the 15-year-old was gifted with his very own shoot. To his delight, Brown got to create social media promotion content for his company that launched in 2018.
In addition to the shoot, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs made a surprise appearance and presented Brown a $25,000 business grant.
Earlier this year, Brown inked a deal with NBA team The Philadelphia 76ers’ Buy Black Program. The program was designed to help grow some amazing, local, and Black-owned businesses.
“Growing up as a kid in Philadelphia I would always watch the 76ers games, so to be a part of their Buy Black Program as a 15-year-old entrepreneur is a dream come true,” said Brown.
The clothing company has also garnered a loyal celebrity following with rappers like DaBaby and Meek Mill sporting his fly gear.
Brown opened his first store, located in his hometown of Philadelphia, using money from a business loan Diddy granted to Brown in 2020. A little over one year later, Brown opened his second SPERGO store location on June 10, 2021.
Trey Brown has shown no signs of slowing down. By being a successful business owner at such a young age, Trey hopes to inspire others to fulfill their hopes and dreams at any age.
