We should work together!
Jeanette's long bio. Edit at will.
Jeanette is Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of The Hacker Exchange, a global, tertiary-accredited program connecting curious entrepreneurs & innovators to opportunities in Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv, Singapore and beyond.
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in the US, Japan, and Australia, Jeanette is a true global citizen and is committed to bringing an international market mindset to the next generation of founders. Her students have been seen pitching on Chinese TV, on stage at Brazilian accelerator programs, and in the boardroom opposite angel investors and VCs.
Earlier in her career, Jeanette built digital products, marketing strategies & and product innovations at some of Australia’s largest corporates, including ANZ, AXA and Origin Energy, leading small teams through to multi-million dollar projects, before becoming immersed in the startup & education scene.
She is also co-creator of the Gingerbread Demolition non-profit event for Save the Children Australia, a speaker at General Assembly, SXSW for G’Day USA, Melbourne Knowledge Week and more, served as an Ambassador for the women of Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine, and was listed in Smart Company’s 2018 International Women's Day Showcase.
With a background in economics, sociology and marketing, Jeanette loves blending the excitement of the startup world with the power of the business world, and believes the best results come from diversity of thinking and a 'never stop learning' mindset.
Coaching & Mentoring
I love helping people elevate ideas to the next level and inspiring action. Sometimes it's formal, and sometimes it's just over a coffee.
If you're a founder, young professional, or need help dealing with being the "only [quality / gender / age group] in the room", I'm available for office hours. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
