Eight-year-old Joey Hudicka’s parents always knew he had a bit of the entrepreneur in him. He once tried to sell them seashells on a family vacation. But they never would have guessed he would create a going software venture before he reached the third grade.
With some encouragement (OK, and several thousand dollars) from his parents, Joey created an iPhone game he named Puckz, a combination of hockey and checkers. He hired a firm in India to develop the software and oversaw every detail of the game’s design from his Flemington, New Jersey, bedroom.
