At least a third of the company founders featuring on this year’s BRW Fast Starters list were born overseas, and 38 per cent of Fast Starters have at least one founder born overseas.

Entrepreneurs like Samtani say their desire to launch their own business – and shoulder the risk and hard work that goes with it – had a lot to do with their experience in countries outside Australia, in uprooting and going overseas, or in being awe-struck by the opportunity here. Some derived their work ethic from watching their parents struggle to set up, while others spotted opportunities in Australia that had already flourished in another country. Common to most is the ability to think big and have aspirations towards global markets beyond Australia’s borders.

Succeeding under pressure

Cham Tang, co-founder of education and training business Authentic Education (No. 94), arrived with his parents on a boat from Vietnam in the late 1970s. He was too young to remember the experience, but does remember his mum spending endless hours behind a sewing machine before opening her own shop.

Inspired by family

“My mum worked so much she wasn’t around to help with my homework,” Tang says. “I was very independent, made my own decisions and wasn’t institutionalised into believing I had to climb the corporate ladder. I think entrepreneurialism is something natural that people have but if they get told repeatedly you should get good marks, get this job and that job you start to think ‘oh, maybe that’s what I should do’.”
