We have a little treat for our next meet up in that the beautiful Gen George is coming to lunch!
Gen is one of the founders of LMBDW and a young gun who, before the ripe age of 26, has done incredible things on her journey in business.
In case you haven’t seen or heard the buzz about Gen, here’s a quick summary (yes some stalking efforts here)…
- In 2012 Gen launched OneShift on the back of a free blog some posters, duck tap and an iPad.
- Within the first month OneShift had acquired 300 users as well as a couple of clubs who were using the marketplace.
- Within the space of three years, OneShift now has over 700,000 users and 40,000 businesses across the whole of Australia.
- In 2013, OneShift received an investment of $5 million for 27.5% equity from Programmed (ASX: PRG).
- More recently, OneShift has launched a new service: Skilld.com; an online marketplace that instantly connects local talent to local businesses.
We’re lucky in that our little Newcastle/Hunter chapter is still small and so the format for this meet up with a casual, yet intimate lunch. No regimented speaking topics, no formal networking - just grass roots conversation mingling with some like minded bitches over lunch :)
