If you could go into business with any celebrity entrepreneur, who would it be?

For 53 percent of Australians, the answer is Oprah Winfrey. Obviously.

A poll conducted by accounting software firm Xero found that one in two Aussie small business owners surveyed would love to join forces with the TV queen Down Under.

Former Victoria's Secret Model Miranda Kerr was a daylight second with 11.6 percent, but she's cool with it.

That was ahead of Gywneth Paltrow (10.8 percent), Kate Hudson (10.0 percent) and Jay-Z (9.2 percent).

Kim Kardashian, with 5.6 percent, polled lowest.

Oprah also led the global survey with nearly 40 percent of votes and fell second to Mark Cuban in the US, where the businessman worth $3 billion is best known for owning NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks.

But she was back on top in the UK poll, ahead of Stella McCartney and Gwyneth.

Who else would you consider for a business venture; Richard Branson? Mark Bouris?

Donald Trump?
