What is 30under30?

30under30 is an Anthill initiative launched in early 2008 to encourage and promote entrepreneurship among young Australians. This year saw a surplus of highly qualified entrants, so we thought we would highlight some of the bright and innovative nominees who just missed the Top 30 by a wink. Behold, our 2012 30under30 Honourable Mentions! More.

Calvin Ng, NSW (b. 1983)

Name: Calvin Ng
Age: 29 (Born: January 1983)
Gender: Male
State: NSW
Known for: Aura Capital Group

Losing his job as a hedge fund analyst might have been the best business move to happen to Calvin Ng. It gave him the incentive to concentrate full-time on his boutique corporate advisory firm, Aura Capital.

Ng’s describes the company as “a self-funding incubator for early-stage investment,” and includes legal and tax advice through subsidiaries.

With offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Singapore, Aura has raised over $15m in equity capital from investors in the last two years. In the interim, Ng has built up two medium-sized businesses, 1300 Home Loan and Finsure Finance & Insurance.

Using his sharp insight on markets, finding the perfect mesh of business partners and cold-calling his way to the top, Ng has opened up opportunities more massive than his younger intrapreneur self could have predicted.

Second chances are everything.

Anthill asks: Calvin Ng, what motivates you as an entrepreneur?

A desire to never stop learning and constantly test my abilities.
