Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we show how being frustrated and nearly broke because of a market failing can provide a great start-up opportunity.

Weighed down by $20 million-worth of property that he needed to sell due to debt problems, Garry Braams found that the real estate market was too inflexible for him to shift the burden.

Braams went about solving the problem he encountered by launching Clik Real Estate, which allows agents to sell multi-listed property across the country.

Today, Braams explains how he turned his unenviable debt situation into a $3 million revenue business.

Elsewhere, we have news of Pollenizer’s latest launch and mentor Gillian Franklin ruminates over the causes of the retail downturn.

Finally, we will be unveiling the Future Makers list later today. Are you one of the best Australian entrepreneurs aged under 25? Keep an eye on the site to find out.
