Forbes 30 under 30, Telstra Young Business Women's Award 2017 In 2012, I launched OneShift on the back of a free blog, some posters, duck tap and an ipad. After the first month of it being live, it had 300 university students and several clubs using it. Within 6 months OneShift had over 10k users. OneShift received an investment of $5 million for 27.5% equity from Programmed (ASX: PRG) and who subsequently purchased it in 2016. More recently, I've launched Skilld.com, a dynamic online marketplace that instantly connects local talent to local businesses and also tamme.io an analytics and advertising platform for marketplaces. I'm heavily involved in the start-up and business community in Australia. I mentor for several schools, co-working spaces etc. and lead several women in bus/tech initiatives, including: 'Women In Tech Australia' and ‘LMBDW', which has over 50,000 members. I also work with City and State Government to increase awareness of start-ups, and to connect corporate companies for mentoring and investing initiatives with the wider aim to help Australian start-ups to think and grow globally. This is achieved through partnerships with Boston Consulting Group, Council of Small Business Australia (COSBOA) and I was recently named the youngest Sydney Chair for the Young Presidents Org (YPO).
