Please join us for the launch of the Aussie Founders Network NYC Chapter!
The Aussie Founders Network was started in Silicon Valley three years ago by Aussie founders with a mission to support Aussie tech founders and startups land and expand into the USA Market and scale to success!
There is already great connectedness amongst the Aussie tech and entrepreneurial community in NYC and we are excited to harness and grow the pay-it-forward founder expertise, knowledge and experiences to ensure Australian founded startups prosper globally.
Please come and celebrate the AFN NYC Launch. There will be drinks, delicious appetizers, and discussion!
To kick off the AFN NYC Chapter we have stellar speakers discussing Landing & Expanding your Aussie startup in NYC:
Geoff McQueen, Co-founder & CEO of Accelo, a powerful cloud-based professional service automation platform. Accelo closed their series A in 2017 and Geoff splits his time between the three Accelo offices; San Francisco, Denver and Wollongong. Geoff is also a founding AFN Board Member and a strong voice in the Aussie founder community in the USA and will moderate the panel discussion.
Karl Redenbach, Co-founder & CEO of LiveTiles. Karl is passionate about building an organization that will revolutionize how people interact with technology at work. Originally from Melbourne, Australia Karl now resides in NYC, and lives by the mantra, “You can be comfortable or courageous, but you can’t be both”. Karl has many lessons learned to share on startup milestones including LiveTiles recent ASX IPO in 2018 and the acquisition of Wizdom in 2019.
Lizzy Brockhoff, Co-founder of Masse, a peer to peer recommendations platform that reinvents the way consumers find products. Prior to Masse, Lizzy was an early member of Jet.com leading product development for the launch of Jet.com’s website, iOS and Android apps through to Jet.com’s acquisition by Walmart for $3.3BN in 2017 – the highest price ever paid for a U.S. e-commerce business. Lizzy, a dual Australian/American citizen, grew up in Australia and now lives in NYC.
