Jake Millar's company is aiming for a slice of the billion dollar international business education market. The 23 year old is the founder and CEO of Unfiltered TV, a website which hosts around 300 interviews with global business leaders and entrepreneurs and has attracted more than 30 million views.

He and co-founder Yuuki Ogino, also 23, were named in last year's Forbes Magazine "30 under 30" rankings of young up-and-coming business figures.

The business has just closed another funding round, and raised $2.4 million from some heavy-weight investors.

Jake Millar says the capital is to expand Unfiltered into the business education market and already has signups from the likes of MYOB and KPMG Asia.
