The Apprentice 2012: Nick Holzherr

Age: 25
Occupation: Technology Entrepreneur
Lives: Birmingham, UK

Nick, who lived in Switzerland for seven years as a child, was named ‘emerging entrepreneur of the year’ by Insider Magazine in 2010.

When Nick was nine years old he earned money by selling lost golf balls back to golfers. He enjoys playing squash, snowboarding and cooking, and loves buying kitchen gadgets.

Nick feels his intelligence is one of his strengths but knows his impatient nature can sometimes make him come across as arrogant.

He would like to build and sell his own businesses before becoming an investor in start-up companies, and cites Steve Jobs as an inspiration.

He says: “I’ve got lots of ideas, I know how to whittle them down into ideas that will work and I’ve got what it takes to make them actually happen.”
