Today on StartupSmart, we feature some words of advice for budding entrepreneurs who aren’t sure which industry to enter.

As Vito Russo, founder of Expanda Van Homes, explains, setting criteria such as being “recession-proof”, scalable and enjoyable can help define the type of business you start-up.

If you are in two minds over which way to jump, make sure you read how Russo plumped for a concept that generated $600,000 in revenue in its first full year of operation.

Elsewhere, Taskmaster demands that you conduct a gender pay gap investigation and mentor Craig Yeung has some advice on how to divide up your business with a co-founder.

Today is the last day that you can put your name forward for our Future Makers list.

If you are one of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs aged under 25, we want to hear from you. For more details, click here.
