Ali Terai

Turns out, it’s not where you start in life, but how you finish that really matters. 

When Ali Terai was in high school, he never imagined that he would be accepted into university or become an award-winning entrepreneur one day. But after hitting rock bottom and receiving an alarming wake-up call, Ali knew he had to do something to change the direction of his life. 

This determination and a willingness to say yes to every opportunity led Ali to become one of the youngest ever senior executives at Monash University and on-track to a leadership course at New York University. It was there that Ali was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. 

Armed with a potential business idea, Ali committed to taking a series of imperfect actions. What started off as a Facebook ad and a series of events that ‘flopped,’ grew into Future Golf, Australia’s fastest growing golf community.

In this episode, Ali shares his riveting journey from rock bottom to becoming an award-winning entrepreneur, the imperfect steps he took to start Future Golf, and the practical takeaways he’s learnt from his entrepreneurial journey.
