Today we talk to IT entrepreneur Geoff Rohrsheim. Geoff was part our panel at the InDaily Business Index Event, which you can listen to in Episode 56, but we’ve got him back to go deeper into his fascinating story.
Geoff is a former EY Entrepreneur of the Year winner for the southern region and had 3 start-ups appear in the BRW Fast 100. His company, Kloud Solutions grew rapidly in five years and was ranked the fastest growing company in Australia in 2014, before being acquired by Telstra in early 2016 for north of 40 million dollars.
This was Geoff’s second sale. His first company, Strategic Data Management, was also picked up for a multi-million dollar sum .. and he explains the fundamentals of planning for a successful exit.
He tried retirement for a few months but got bored. Geoff now has five startups on the go, all focused on emerging fields in tech, and explains how he keeps on top of the growing companies.
