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.

David Truong, VIC (b. 1986)

Name: David Truong
Age: 26 (Born: March 1986)
Gender: Male
State: VIC
Known for: Broccol-e-games

How to put this straight: kiddies hate mathematics. At least, it’s not easy to motivate them to learn it — which is why David Truong, with three businesses and six years in the education industry behind him, is gaming things up.

The Adelaide native made the leap to Melbourne to establish Broccol-e-games (named, of course, for the food equivalent of maths). In July, the company released its first educational game, Maths With Springbird, which hit Number One on the Australia/New Zealand Education App Store.

Previously, Truong opened Australian Entertainment Training, a vocational training company, while still a uni student.

He recently persevered after a falling out with his co-founders led to the restructuring of the company.

Truong is now credited as the sole founder of Broccol-e-games and will continue to pursue a healthy gaming diet that fulfils his vision for his company.

To supplement his jumpy fowls, more colourful characters are sure to follow.

Anthill asks: David Truong, what motivates you as an entrepreneur?

To make a positive and lasting impact on the world that will far outlast my own life. My parents were refugees and came to Australia with nothing but their clothes. Their hard work, perseverance and sacrifices are what motivates me to make an impact.
