Co-Founder Aurelius Digital
Give a brief overview of your background / experience
"I have a passion for propelling start up and stagnant business into high growth and profitability through the development of sound strategy and highly targeted execution, and driving success by leveraging reputable business models to manage risk and performance to secure outcomes.
Enjoy commercialisation and market entry activities, new venture creation with a view to building sustainable innovative business models, shifting paradigms and having some fun.
I have a strong emphasis on the personal and professional development of others through coaching and mentoring.
I have worked with some of the world's most forward thinking and progressive companies including Richard Branson's Virgin Management team (UK), involved at the grass roots of new ventures and start-up operations developing a strong commercial acumen and interest in building companies for high growth.
I have significant new business sales and sales management experience sharpened through strong and credible start-ups (mine and others), new ventures and multi-national corporations including Motorola and Cisco.
I built and executed the go-to-market strategy for a $20M Startup (PostZone) for Australia Post, setting the strategic direction for Post's digital communications play.
As a co-founder of Aurelius Digital we started with a singular and altruistic objective - to remove the friction between entrepreneurs, start-ups and high growth companies looking funding, and connect them through a trusted network to angels and investors wanting the best tech, digital and web 2.0 deal-flow in Australia. Aurelius Digital is a truly successful and unique Angel Investment Network now has over 210 active investors and has funded close to 70% of all deals put forward. Aurelius Digital does not charge investors or entrepreneurs to be part of the network, and we do not clip the ticket on any transactions or take fees - we do it because we love it and that's our success."
