He’s the man behind one of the most jaw-dropping business acquisitions in recent Australian history. In January, Dean McEvoy’s group-buying concern, Spreets, was snapped up by Yahoo!7 for $40 million.

It was a stunning coup for Spreets, which was launched only 10 months earlier but clearly had perfectly timed the group-buying wave led worldwide by outfits like Groupon and LivingSocial.

McEvoy sits down with Anthill 30under30 standout Jack Delosa for an interview for The Entourage project, which strives to connect the world’s best entrepreneurs with the next generation of entrepreneurs.

In this clip, McEvoy describes how a business that handled restaurant reservations morphed into Spreets. He also shares his insights about raising money and wooing investors (two talents in which he appears to excel).
