It’s an intense 54hr weekend of pitching, learning, developing, conceptualising and validating.
I won my first ever start-up through the formation of a 3-man team, which shortly after the weekend, it self-destructed. Not willing to be disheartened and with an enlarged passion, I flew up north to attended another start-up weekend. I came up with an idea on the flight, leading to forming another team, which become victorious and increasing my Start-up weekend success to 2 out of 2.
Unfortunately, that idea didn't have enough legs in the market place after continued research.
Where did I go next?
Ilab germinate boot camp, this was another learning opportunity & insight into start-ups & accelerators & their expectations. I used it as an opportunity to hone my skills & develop my focus on my next project.
After attending some seminars and Queensland's first Inovation summit as part of a deligation. A few of us then attended the sunshine coast startup weekend, where I joined a team and pushed them through the weekend to succeed- winning another startup weekend making the total 3 out of 3. We are currently moving forward with Surf Pulse.
In a nut shell, 'I strive to achieve things people lable too hard or impossible.'
It's what I do and who I am, I'm passionate about customers & business. Throughout this journey I have successfully achieved the unachievable with clients. I dream big and have learnt how to take ideas & turn them into reality.
If you have a great idea & are looking for a passionate ‘Business person' contact me & together we can take the world by storm.
Well if you're still reading, then I have your attention & obviously possess something you’re looking for.
