Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we profile an entrepreneur who, just a few years ago, was working out of his backyard shed, but is now worth an estimated $20 million.

Dorry Kordahi, founder of merchandise and marketing firm DKM, discovered his entrepreneurial passion after toying with careers as diverse as basketballer and hairdresser.

His business now has a turnover of more than $10 million, but Kordahi had to overcome various hurdles, including family rivalry and a crowded marketplace, to get there. Today, he explains how he did it.

Elsewhere, we chat to our resident New York blogger Michael Giles about his start-up, Roboinvest, and mentor Tom O’Toole has some tips on how to forge an alliance with a complementary small business.
