Jennifer Reyes

With a 200% profit margin day-on-day (partly by obtaining funding through her parents in a form of pocket money), Jennifer grew the business considerably and expanded her client base within a matter of weeks. A big accomplishment, given that trading hours were only at recess and lunch.

A proud mother to an inquisitive 2-year-old, Jennifer is also the Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of VROC Artificial Intelligence - a West Australian tech company specialising in Machine Learning and Industrial Big Data.

Prior to re-establishing herself as an entrepreneur, Jennifer worked in various industries such a technology, transportation, construction, mining, and oil and gas, in varying capacity as a developer, consultant, business analyst and project manager for several large multinational companies.

Jennifer holds a Bachelor’s degree in Science, double major in Communications and Information Technology and Multimedia, a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Information Systems Management, and an MBA.
