What is the 30under30?
30under30 is an Anthill initiative launched in early 2008 to encourage and promote entrepreneurship among young Australians.
Each year, we invite our readers to nominate young Australian entrepreneurs deserving of recognition for their outstanding entrepreneurial endeavours. More.
Al Jeffery (born 1994) and Simon Harman (born 1997)
Name(s): Al Jeffery (b. April 1994) and Simon Harman (b. March 1997)
Age(s): 21 and 18
Known for: Base
Base is aimed at creating spaces and experiences that incubate and connect people and ideas. The company, co-founded by Al Jeffery and Simon Harman, is developing Australia’s first co-living and co-working space in Footscray, Victoria.
Base focuses on crafting highly curated and intimate gatherings and events for those doing disruptive work to allow “idea-sex” to take place (ed. – okay, “idea-sex” is the company’s own term, but we think we know what they mean – eh, or at least, most of our ideas involve “sex” somehow, uh, right?!). Base also creates physical spaces for community and disruptive creation to take place. So that’s idea-sex and physical space… Right! Gotta keep it clear.
“I am driven by the incredible time we live in,” Al recently told us.
“More empowered than any previous generation and more collaborative than ever before. We just need new spaces, new connections and new ideas to leverage all this opportunity!”
And that is precisely what Base is all about: immediate connection with all.
Anthill Online is pleased to announce Al Jeffery and Simon Harman, 2015 30under30 winners!
