Event description

Description

Learn from and network with Queensland’s leading entrepreneurs in business, technology and the creative industries. Our third Game Changers conversation for 2019 celebrates the inspiring work and foresight of Leanne Kemp.

About Leanne Kemp

Ms Kemp’s ground breaking blockchain startup (Everledger) was listed as one of the World Economic Forum’s most promising technology pioneers of 2018. Leanne is pushing boundaries with Everledger using blockchain to build a universal verification system that enables the tracking and protection of high-value assets, consequently mitigating risk and fraud in global marketplaces.

Leanne Kemp has more than 20 years’ experience in the tech world and knows first-hand how to forge a very successful career as an entrepreneur. In just three years Leanne built her company up into a global power player with offices in five countries, including her largest tech workforce right here in Brisbane. In 2018 Leanne’s company raised more than $10 million in venture capital and now employs 72 people – including many women in key technical roles and managerial positions.

Her part-time, unpaid role as Chief Entrepreneur of Queensland involves working with the Queensland government to ensure Queensland is doing everything possible to support our companies to scale-up and expand overseas.

Join us for an interesting evening of discussion that will focus on

  • the role of Queensland's Chief Entrepreneur
  • understanding the potential of block chain
  • unlocking the value of waste
  • the place of design in sustainable business development
  • why a circular economy can not be ignored
  • why collaboration is powerful
  • Queensland as the right place to start a business, grow a busines and thrive
