Philadelphia native Trey Brown is the 15-year-old owner of SPERGO, a boutique fashion collection for both genders as well as children. 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. With the continuous expansion of his brand, Brown was able to open up a second location for his store in The Pentagon City Mall located in Washington D.C., retire his mother, and get the attention and support of music executive P. Diddy and National Television host Ellen. The clothing company has also garnered a loyal celebrity following with rappers like DaBaby and Meek Mill sporting his fly gear.
15-Year Old CEO Trey Brown is showing people all-over the world that you can be successful doing positive things! “SPERGO was started in January 2018 with Trey’s birthday money of $178. He wanted to empower youth and be the example that you can do great things at any age. His brand combines luxury and urban activewear with sweatsuits, hoodies, boxer briefs, and accessories. On a recent appearance on Ellen, Brown discussed how Diddy was one of his biggest inspirations and fueled his desire to open a business at an early age with a $25,000 business grant. Furthermore, Brown’s collaboration and support from The Philadelphia 76ers has made his childhood dreams come true.
“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 SPERGO CEO Trey Brown. “I started SPERGO three years ago and I would never have imagined that I would be officially stamped a 76ers partner by my home basketball team.”
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.
