Andre Borell has founded, grown and sold many businesses in his young career, and now wants to share his wealth of knowledge. As a multiple Award Winning Entrepreneur – he may seem young, but Andre has been around business for most of his life. He was helping his electrician father, on-site by the time he was 12 years old, and was working in the family business by the age of 15.
Whilst working in the family business full time, Andre completed a Bachelor of Business Management at The University of Queensland. Andre then put 100% focus on the family business, and in only four years helped transform the company from a two-person operation run by his Mum and Dad, into a company that employed nine staff with a multi-million dollar turnover annually. Andre then helped broker the sale of the business to an ASX listed company, in order to allow his parents to retire.
Andre has since gone on to found many businesses of his own, some of which are small niche businesses, some are multi-million dollar businesses, and some are international companies.
After facing many hurdles, such as lack of access to finance as a young entreprenuer, and also very aggressive haters and competitors, Andre made his first million by the age of 25, and continues to grow his various business interests and wealth.
His businesses have been listed in both the Australian Financial Review Fast Starters list (fastest growing start-ups) and also Fast 100 list (fastest growing businesses), and he was awarded the title of ‘Young Entreprenuer of the Year’ in 2016.
Andre now wants to share the knowledge that helped him achieve these impressive feats, so that other small and medium sized business owners, or aspiring business owners, can reap the rewards of refining, expanding, growing and possibly even selling their business.
