Harry appears in the 

Top 100 People in Finance

Harry Hurst

Inventor, patent holder, serial entrepreneur, and tech guru called “boy genius” by Forbes. While most 12-year-olds were attending their first junior high formal, Harry was graduating high school, steeped in the knowledge of computer science. It seems he entered this world sprinting toward the future—and he’s never stopped. He is now recognized as one of the leading business and product development executives in technology and marketing.

With a mind for technology and business, a spirited imagination, and the determination to succeed, Harry’s rise can only be described as meteoric. He came to America with no network. Just a couple of short years later, leading investors in Silicon Valley were helping to fund the development and bring to market the products he had invented—propelling Harry from boy genius to one of the most prominent people in his industry.

Harry launched his first brainchild, Skurt, in Los Angeles in 2014, after raising $15 million in venture capital from some of the largest investors in the US to bring his invention to life. The novel on-demand, app-based rental car company allows consumers to book rental cars, which are then delivered to their location. In 2018, Harry sold Skurt to Fair.com for a reported $50 million. Now, on the heels of that success, Harry and cofounder of Skurt have started a new venture—a fintech company that provides payment solutions for cloud services companies—funded by the co-founder of PayPal and many other big names in venture capital.

While constantly imagining or developing new products, and preparing to launch a new business, through it all, Harry continues to share his insight and knowledge in esteemed outlets such as Forbes and TechCrunch, and as a member of the Forbes Tech Advisory Council to help the industry and other budding entrepreneurs to thrive. He also acts as a consultant for many international organizations on the topics of business and product development, including music artists.

Harry is still racing into the future—and he’s bringing the world with him.
