Early Life

Don Manifold grew up in Mount Gambier, a local city in South Australia. Before working in other regions such as London, Melbourne, and Croatia, his first career venture was in Adelaide.

Don’s entrepreneurial spirit was nurtured by his family. Growing up in the business world undoubtedly shaped Don’s management style, focus, and drive, and encouraged the professional development that led him to where he is today. Don’s first taste of business came while he was still at school. He attended Flinders University in Adelaide, where he pursued a Bachelor of Economics.

In 2018, Don Manifold and two other partners founded Manifold Equity and Advisory; a preeminent South Australian Corporate Advisory firm focused on delivering high-quality strategic advice and capital markets solutions to local and international clients.

E&A’s high-caliber service is a result of the firm’s commitment to innovation; the company’s model is designed for scalability, accessibility, and agility. A digital-first approach enables 24/7 accessibility, and an integrated systems platform connects all stakeholders.

Don’s advice for young professionals is to be bold, not just in terms of risk-taking, but in being willing to challenge the status quo. This is something he’s always been willing to do, and it’s one of the reasons he’s been so successful. If you want to succeed, you have to be willing to stand out from the crowd. Don suggests that you focus on your strengths and find ways to maximize your impact. With this approach, you can achieve great things, regardless of your age.
