Fleet, 22-year-old Portlander's startup, raises another $10 million

January 24, 2018View for printing

At 14, an age when other kids want video games and gadgets, Max Lock wanted a job.

"My birthday just came around and I told my parents, I want to get my working paper," Lock recalls. He was living in Pennsylvania at the time, and state law required young teens to get their parents' sign-off before taking a job. They gave it, so he went to work administering computers for a restaurant chain.

"I just always wanted to be busy," Lock said. "I enjoyed working more than school."
