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.

Daniel Calleja, VIC (b. 1985)

Name: Daniel Calleja
Age: 27 (Born: May 1985)
Gender: Male
State: VIC
Known for: Innovating Visuals

Daniel Calleja has been working the camera since he was a teenager. He studied Multimedia at uni, confirmed his passion for the field, and then, at 23, turned it into a business: Innovating Visuals.

Calleja and company specialise in promotional videos, events filming, photography and even e-learning technology. Innovating Visuals has taken on Rio Tinto, Westpac, and the Victorian Government as clients.

Notably, Calleja matured as an entrepreneur by finding opportunity in hardship. Living with scoliosis, he found mentors in his physical therapist and chiropractor, both of whom have helped strengthen him as an entrepreneur as well as a patient.

“Over the years, their experience has been gold in helping me learn the trade of client relationships and building strong sustainable teams,” he says.

In 2010, Calleja landed in South Africa in time for the World Cup and his first film work abroad. Your ears may recoil hearing the vuvuzela, but you can certainly appreciate the story behind it that Calleja skillfully reveals.

Anthill asks: Daniel Calleja, what motivates you as an entrepreneur?

My focus is on building a team that is based on self-belief and building quality relationships. When the team at Innovating Visuals are working well, our ability to relate to our clients and deliver great results grows stronger. I get a kick of our growing an energetic team and revealing people’s talents.
