21 Kiel Van Daal


Kiel Van Daal founded digital communications agency Digilante three years ago.

The business has been able to snap up blue-chip and corporate clients in a very short amount of time and is turning over around $2.3 million.

Van Daal says this year he will have his hands full thanks to winning a contract to rebrand the Australian Rugby Union.

As for how he’s managed to win so many high-profile clients in such a short amount of time, Van Daal says it all comes down to being “people-people”.

“That’s a big selling point for us,” the 29-year-old entrepreneur tells SmartCompany.

“There’s a lot of BS that surrounds agencies and the buzzwords people use. We keep it real. That seems to resonate really well with people.”
