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.
Genevieve George, NSW (b. 1990)
Name: Genevieve George
Age: 24 (born December 1990)
Known for: OneShift
Genevieve George’s company, OneShift, is an online job marketplace that matches people to the job that is right for them and finds employers the right people to hire. It is similar to a dating website but for employers and candidates and connects these two.
Genevieve, now 24 years old, started OneShift (with the help of angel investors) at the age of 21. Although her business is presently riding high on wave of success, having secured more than $5 million (AUD) in funding, things haven’t always been easy for the young entrepreneur.
“At 21, when I was just starting the company and only had my own savings to fund the company, I paid a developer in the US $2500 to build a website for me. It seemed a legitimately great idea at the time, only I soon found out that it was a scam and the majority of my savings invested into the company disappeared,” Genevieve recently told Anthill.
“I learnt from my mistake, learnt not to be so naive and to weigh up decisions more thoroughly.”
Fortunately, Genevieve was able to steer her fledgling company back on track. Now, OneShift is home to employees, and its user base has grown to 520,000 job seekers and 35,000 employers. That’s a whole lotta people getting to work. And the $5 million dollar investment is a whole lotta bread!
Now, on top of those remarkable accomplishments, Anthill is pleased to announce Genevieve George as a 2015 30under30 winner!
