Ashik Ahmed was flipping burgers when he went from Bangladesh to Australia at 17. Now, he is worth $148 Million!
After he saw al the challenges in monitoring and managing employees, Ashik got the idea of a workforce management system – and Deputy.com was born.
His software helps business owners roster and pay their employees and the company boasts a client list of more than 184,000, including Hubspot, Qantas and NASA.
The 38-year-old is now listed at number 25 on the Australian Financial Review Young Rich List, released this week, and worth $148 million.
“I never did it for the money and I still wouldn’t. It doesn’t matter whether I’m in the rich list or not, it does not change why I get out of bed every morning,” he said in an interview with SBS Australia. “Validation in life comes from enriching other people’s lives.”
