Digital innovation

Nathan Chan is helping young entrepreneurs find the key to success through his globally successful digital magazine. 

"I grew up with computers, so studying IT at uni seemed to be the obvious decision. After working in industry for a while, I realised it wasn’t for me.

I attended a VU postgraduate information evening and decided the marketing course was a good fit.

There was an open, friendly learning environment on campus and my lecturers were supportive; I wasn’t just another number.

I wanted to uncover the secrets to being a successful entrepreneur and launched Foundr, a monthly digital magazine for young entrepreneurs five months after graduating. Now we have over 250,000 subscribers and one million podcast listeners, in 173 countries around the world!

I love marketing my business, and manage a team of contractors from across the globe. I’ve interviewed successful entrepreneurs around the world including Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson.

The digital publishing revolution is coming, and I want to inspire tens of thousands through the magazine."
