Milun Tesovic (born August 6, 1985) is a Canadian computer engineer, and was one of the youngest internet entrepreneurs to sell his company to a major American media conglomerate.[1][2][3]

Born in the Sarajevo, Bosnia in the former Yugloslavia, Tesovic emigrated to Canada with his father, mother and sister, during the 1994 war. He has cited his immigrant background for making him self-motivated and hard working person.[4]

At age 16, Milun created the online music website Metrolyrics which years later was sold to CBS in 2011.[5] MetroLyrics was ranked the largest lyric website with more than 50 million unique visitors every month.

In 2002, partner Alan Juristovski joined Milun to incorporate MetroLeap Media Inc., where Milun served as CTO. Since then Milun invested in numerous companies both online and offline across North America.

Milun is now a partner at Expa.
