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.

Marcus Lim, NSW (b. 1985)

Name:  Marcus Lim
Age: 29 (born  May 1985)
Gender: Male
State: NSW
Known for: Oneflare

Marcus Lim needed some renovations done in his apartment, but had troubles finding someone trustworthy to do the job. 

Finding combing through  the Yellow Pages too cumbersome a task, Marcus knew he could build something that made this process much easier, faster and more affordable. 

He approached his good friend, Adam Dong, and together they built and launched Oneflare

Oneflare is an online marketplace that connects customers with local service providers (like cleaners, electricians, plumbers, removalists, pest controllers, painters, accountants, renovators, landscapers, gardeners, and more).

Since entering the 30under30 for the first time in 2011, Marcus has raised capital for Oneflare,  grown its team from six to 17 people, achieved seven-digit revenue each year, launched an iOS app, expanded the company to the UK, and added a new product, called Scrapbooks. 

Oneflare doesn’t focus on viral growth or visibility.

It’s focus is on developing trust with customers and businesses and making sure they’re happy with every experience. 

Oneflare focuses strongly on marketing, and getting the suppliers in board. 

By focusing on customer demands and needs, as well as  the total CRM (customer relationship management) picture, Oneflare has grown from the ground up, with steady growth.

Marcus is motivated by being able to influence how the market works. He saw the gap, and knew he could change the way people booked and completed home service jobs. 

Since he started Oneflare, his biggest inspiration has been to grow a team with a strong company culture. That puts Marcus Lim on Anthill’s 2014 30under30 winners’ list!

Anthill asks:What’s Marcus Lim’s super power?

 Marcus has always been interested in the startup space and has been passionate about making industries more efficient. He’s driven by good company culture, a huge focus at Oneflare.
