What is 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.
Joshua Kamil, VIC (b. 1985)
Name: Joshua Kamil
Age: 25 (Born: November 1985)
Joshua Kamil’s Ready Steady Print business, launched in 2006, removes the “inherent inefficiences” of the printing industry, delivering products to clients at a fraction of the cost.
He says he outsources all areas of production to optimise price and quality, and is able to give SMEs print products at costs typically available only to big corporate players. And he does it all with a low-overhead model that uses less than five employees. Sniffing out inefficiencies and irradicating them is one of Kamil’s strengths.
Ready Set Print generates more than $1 million in sales per annum, and has experienced annual growth of more than 40% since 2008. It’s not surprising, then, that Kamil took a step up this year, going from 30under30 honourable mention last year to a full-fledged honoree in 2011.
The business started with fewer than 10 clients. It now has more than 4,000. And it’s the big package RSP offers that keep ’em coming back, along with the little things: Kamil puts cards in the back of business-card holders everywhere. The card sports the company’s URL and a code for a 10% discount on a first order.
Kamil, who started his first business at age 12, is all about the little details of business and beyond: “I carefully look at everything I do in my day-to-day life, always looking for possible opportunities. I am not limited to any particular industry or sector and believe that through my analysis, planning, determination and attainable knowledge, I can conquer any industry.”
Anthill asks: Joshua Kamil, what’s your superpower?
“Having studied corporate finance and accounting for five years and been invited numerous times to complete my Ph.D. in finance, I would have to say that numbers and feasibility are my thing.”
