Jess Ratcliffe


Jess Ratcliffe is the founder of GaBoom – the peer-to-peer video game swapping website.  

Jess first had the idea to create a website where gamers could swap their video games with one another when she was 15 years old but sadly couldn’t get the website off the ground using her pocket money!    

Jess went on to start GaBoom when she was 19 years old and in her first year of University.  Since starting GaBoom, Jess has appeared on BBC Dragons’ Den, left University to focus on GaBoom full-time and re-launched the website with a new business model – all in the past year!
