Australia may be known for its laid-back outlook on life, but that hasn't dampened the country's entrepreneurial aptitude, creating exciting opportunities for workers looking to take the plunge into the start-up world.
Industries from finance to recruitment and food are all prime for disruption by young upstarts, according to a new list from LinkedIn, which has ranked the country's most appealing start-ups of 2018. But, it's graphic design innovation that has proved the most successful this year, bumping Sydney-based Canva to the top of the list after six years of rapid growth.
To be considered for this year's list, companies needed to be privately held, seven years old or younger and have 50 or more employees. LinkedIn then looked at the activity of its more than 500 million users to factor in employee growth, job seeker interest and engagement with the company on the platform, as well as how well the upstarts were able to attract talent away from the established players on LinkedIn's Top Companies list.
