Jamal Edwards MBE is an award-winning entrepreneur and founder of SBTV. There aren’t many men of 27 with a CV as flowered with accidental triumph as that of Jamal Edwards. Having received an MBE for his services to music – and one of the few who can boast an A-List-filled photo collection including a selfie spudding Prince William and Harry, an image that went from Jamal’s Twitter to the pages of Vanity Fair and Vogue – it’s fair to call him the millennial’s hero of DIY entrepreneurialism.
But he’s still very much the boy next door – just with a slightly nicer front door now. Having gone from creating his own YouTube channel to curating stages at Bestival and Wireless, from filming on British housing estates to recording interviews from 10 Downing Street to the Bermuda Triangle, Edwards can now boast an expanding business portfolio and a solid reputation that sees him inspiring a new wave of digital entrepreneurialism.
