Superdraft once again is making waves in the Business and Entrepreneur sector.  This time featured in Business News Australia after taking our Top Young Entrepreneur Gold Coast for the second year in a row in the Property & Construction Category.

THE team at Business News Australia has compiled a list of the Gold Coast's brightest young business minds.

In celebration of the 2016 Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur Awards, the 40 under 40 list highlights the achievements of the city's most bold and innovative business founders.

The next generation of leaders have demonstrated tenacity, contributed to economic prosperity and proudly call the Gold Coast home.

The following group of entrepreneurs hail from a wide range of industries, proving that success has many fathers – from swimwear to property and technology in between.

14. Mark Deacon, 26, & Jake Robinson, 32 Superdraft, 2011

WHILE architecture and construction may be considered industries dominated by larger legacy companies, Mark Deacon and Jake Robinson have certainly broken the stereotype.

Robinson founded Superdraft in 2011 to revolutionise drafting and engineering, two years later, paired up with Mark Deacon and today offers a full suite of services from design, drafting, engineering and finance.

In FY16, Superdraft experienced a 241 per cent growth, an achievement that Deacon and Robinson put down to marketing prowess, dedicated R&D and the launch of a new unique virtual reality showroom platform to tie in with the business offering.

'We are ‘uberising' what we are doing. We are streamlining our services, becoming to the construction industry what Uber is to the transport industry,' says Deacon.

'Now we are targeting many different industries including project home building, retail and product, in addition to development and construction.'

Superdraft completes more than 1000 projects each year throughout Australia, with Deacon and Robinson now setting sights on international markets.
