CleanLife Energy beats competition to LED market, reaps rewards
Justin Miller is only 29 years old, but he’s been an entrepreneur for most of his life. Miller, who today is the CEO and founder of LED lighting and component manufacturer CleanLife Energy, first got the entrepreneurial itch when he was 13 and learned HTML from a middle school web design class. He used his skills to start a sports blog — funded by selling online ads to local restaurants — and to build websites for businesses owned by his friends’ parents.
Later, while attending Miami University, he booked and sold tickets to concerts and other on-campus events. Then he studied abroad and, later, moved to China, launching an English-Chinese translation service and a branding and marketing consulting company to help American companies enter the Chinese market.
