Congratulations to the young guns on the 2013 BRW Young Rich List

An excellent effort by a group that knows without risk there are no rewards.

Australia needs to recognise and celebrate these entrepreneurs that produce not only wealth in our community but also support many great causes that make a difference to all our lives.

We look forward to welcoming Ruslan Kogan and co. to our Entrepreneurs Conference later this week: Entrepreneurship in the Asian Century.
