Mr Alborz Fallah

“I am thankful for my parents for sparking my curiosity and providing the safety and support to try new things. I am thankful for the perseverance I learnt at UQ. And I am thankful for my wife, who ignited my passion for life.”

Alborz Fallah is one of Australia’s most successful young entrepreneurs. At just 12-years-old, Fallah created his first company and has since developed 16 more startups across a range of industries.

Fallah founded CarAdvice.com, one of Australia’s most comprehensive and independent sources of car reviews, when he was just 22 and studying full-time at The University of Queensland (UQ).

Fallah sold his majority stake in CarAdvice.com to Nine Entertainment for $35 million and the business now employs more than 100 staff nationally, with offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Fallah’s parents supported him throughout his entrepreneurial journey. His mother holds a PhD in childhood psychology from UQ and his father holds a PhD in sports science.

Fallah said that his success would not have been possible without the support of his wife, with whom he has two young children.

He is passionate about helping the next generation of entrepreneurs and is currently UQ Idea Hub’s first entrepreneur-in-residence, where he mentors budding UQ entrepreneurs.
