Trending: Legendary computer scientist James Gosling joining Amazon Web Services

While checking out the action at Seattle Startup Weekend’s closing event Sunday, I stole a moment to sit down with the weekend’s youngest presenter Ashwin Gowland (also known as “Gap Tooth Kid”).

Ashwin, just six-years old, presented his idea for washable stickers complete with slide deck and an easy confidence that won him the coveted “Most Likely to be the Next Zuckerberg” award.

Here’s crowd-favorite Ashwin (with a little help from Mom) talking about his experience at Startup Weekend.

“He was definitely the youngest and most articulate entrepreneur in training that I know of at a Startup Weekend,” Marc Nager, the executive director of Startup Weekend, tells GeekWire.

You can follow Ashwin and his big smile on Twitter @gaptoothkid.

Michelle Riggen-Ransom is a curious writer, a passionate start-up founder and a lifelong teller of stories and adventures. She runs Social Glu communications consulting and spends much of her time drinking coffee, looking out at the unending majesty of Puget Sound and thinking about going to hot yoga.
