Top 50 Australian male entrepreneurs under 40

- March 10, 2014 2 MIN READ

When compiling this list, it was important for us to have a balanced mix of high-growth startups alongside companies that have been around for a number of years. Unlike the BRW Young Rich List, revenue and personal fortune was only one criterion for the selection of entrepreneurs. We looked at estimated revenues, traction within the specific industry their businesses are in and scalability based on current activities and future plans for the business.

This was not a list that could be entered and any submissions from entrepreneurs directly as well as from PR Agencies played no part in influencing the list. The list was researched and compiled by the team here at shoestring.com.au over the last month. Everyone on the list is aged 40 or under at the time of publication.

Here is our list of Top 50 Male Entrepreneurs under the age of 40 in Australia:
