Anthill is one of Australia’s largest online communities for entrepreneurs, business builders and innovators. It was initially launched as a print magazine, in September 2003, by its current editor-in-chief James Tuckerman, who at the age of 26 quit his day job, departing a promising career in corporate PR, to pursue his own entrepreneurial journey.
Frustrated by what he considered the ‘snoringly dry’ personality of the Australian business media (and Australia’s then ‘highly unenthusiastic’ attitude toward entrepreneurship), James moved back home with his mum and dad (after much begging and pleading) in order to launch what would become Australia’s first magazine specifically dedicated to innovation and entrepreneurship. ‘The Anthill Story’ (2006), courtesy of Inside Business, ABC Television.
In early 2009, James and the Anthill team announced that the magazine would no longer produce a regular print product, so that it could focus its attention on digital activities. Anthill was soon reborn as a small blog in February. These humble online beginnings were short-lived. By November, it was ranked among the Top 50 Business & Finance sites in Australia by Nielson Online Ratings. Source
