About this Event

Join us for the next Leaders, Innovators and Disruptors event with one of Australia’s most respected entrepreneurs, Fred Schebesta.

Fred is an author, blogger, award-winning digital marketer, media commentator, mentor and active member of the startup community. He is the cofounder of Finder – Australia's leading comparison website and one of the biggest in the world – which receives more than 10 million visits each month globally.

At just 26 years of age, Fred entered the comparison market, one of the most highly competitive online categories in Australia. Following its success in Australia, Fred and his business partner, Frank Restuccia, and their 70+ crew, launched finder.com in the US in July 2015.

Fred will share his journey from his early days right through to steering Finder through its first decade of growth with no funding, and moving from a ‘fast follower’ startup to a ‘first mover’ in the comparison space. Find out about how to build a sustainable business model, what to look for in a partnership, how to get your business idea off the ground and more.

His key note will be followed by a Q&A with the audience and a networking lunch.

Spaces are limited, so register early to secure your ticket!
