Frank and I started finder.com because we lived frugally in our first business – we learned the hard way, through trial and error. The errors cost a lot.
As an author, blogger, award-winning digital marketer, media commentator, mentor and active member of the startup community, Fred Schebesta is one of the nation’s most respected entrepreneurs.
Fred is the Co-founder and Director of finder.com.au — one of Australia’s largest comparison websites — which receives millions of visits each month. At only 26 years of age, Fred entered the comparison market — which is one of the most highly competitive online categories in Australia. Following its success in Australia, Fred and business partner Frank Restuccia, and their 70+ crew, launched finder.com in the US in July 2015.
However, Fred’s entrepreneurial journey started well before finder.com.au. At just 22 years of age, while studying a Bachelor of Finance degree at Macquarie University in Sydney, he and Frank created Freestyle Media and grew the business into a successful digital agency that sold to a publicly-listed company in 2007.
At 22, Fred took out the ADMA Australian Young Direct Marketer of the Year. At 23, he was listed in Australian Anthill’s 30 under 30. In both 2011 and 2012, Fred was elected as a judge for the Startup Smart Awards. He also judged Money Magazine’s 2013 Best of the Best Awards for the mobile phone plan category.
Fred is a contributor for news.com.au, The Huffington Post and Fairfax Media. He also regularly appears on TV and radio sharing his experience as an entrepreneur. As a mentor at several organizations including the University of Technology Entrepreneur program and Project Pitch, Fred helps both undergraduate and postgraduate students develop business concepts. He is also a Startup Australia Ambassador and St. George Bank Ambassador.
Fred is inspired to facilitate financial literacy in Australia and to encourage people to have a frugal mindset and to make better financial decisions.
