From rag trade to riches
Meet Stef Passantino, a 27 year old online discount fashion retailer who heads up Lastseason.com.
He's the guy who offered Pete Doherty five grand for a photo shoot because he thought the troubled singer "could do with the money".
A move that subsequently bought Lastseason.com priceless column inches in the world's press when Doherty's management demanded £30,000 "as a bare minimum" for what would have been a day's work (yeah, yeah, we know, Doherty would have been effectively being paid to endorse Lastseason.com, but that didn't stop the tabloids having a field day).
And he's also the guy that has secured a million pounds in backing from Rock Computer's Nick Boardman.

What makes an internet entrepreneur tick?
"I believe some people have a little something in their head that makes them look at things in a slightly different way. Some people absolutely cannot envisage doing anything but working for somebody else - and that is fine. However I believe entrepreneurs are born and will always find a way to do things differently."
Take one internet entrepreneur - for instance Kieron Donoghue (pictured above) - and ask them Five Questions.
Also in the Five Questions hot seat this month is Victoria Vanstone of yourdeathwish.com and Jairus Lee of Comiqs.com.
