TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

A University of Tampa student hasn't even graduated from college yet, but he's already started his own company which was recently named one of the "Coolest College Startups" by Inc. Magazine.

Duncan Abdelnour, age 22, is the founder of Beatmerch, which he launched in October of 2013.

Beatmerch is an interactive and full service marketing company that provides tour merchandise services, online ecommerce platforms and puts together creative licensing agreements for artists and brands.

Inc. Magazine ranked Beatmerch #3 out of 16 startups. The top 16 were picked from 100 college startups from across the country. Inc. Magazine referred to Beatmerch as "one of the largest merchandising companies in the electronic music space."

Abdelnour is a senior at UT. He is majoring in marketing and entrepreneurship.

Two years ago, another UT student was included in the Inc. Magazine's Cool College Startup rankings. Nick Chmura's company BetterBoo was included in the list of 19 companies.
