Lachy Groom, 2012 Anthill 30under30 Winner

One of the more point-blank questions we always ask 30under30 applicants is, "Have you ever been lucky, punk?" Lachy Groom knows a bit about luck: it's taken him from Perth all the way to the rough-n-tumble Silicon Valley hotbed -- and "Dirty Harry" Callahan's own home town -- of San Francisco. At last count, Groom has had six businesses to his credit, three of which sold before he was even 18. He currently oversees Cardnap, a web aggregator -- the largest of its kind, by his reckoning -- dedicated to second-hand gift cards.

Forget Pokemon. Fifteen year-old Lachy Groom created his business swapping ‘gift cards’.

Age has never been a restriction when it comes to entrepreneurship and that certainly rings true in the case of Perth entrepreneur Lachy Groom. Already a serial entrepreneur at the age of 15, he is the founder of a recently launched voucher card trading business that looks set to go places.
