Editor's Note

Whether you feel that building a cigarette company and selling it just three years later for $135 million is a great piece of business acumen or ethically unappetising, there’s no doubting the feat of entrepreneurship to pull it off.

Queenslander Jason Healy tried his luck in the US with blue Cig – a maker of electronic cigarettes, and it paid off spectacularly.

Today, Healy explains how he did it, how other Aussies can follow in his footsteps and why he doesn’t care about the controversy that surrounds his industry.

Closer to home, there’s a new tech start-up accelerator on the Gold Coast and our new mentor, Robert Krigsman, outlines what kind of accountant is needed by a new business.
