CEO Strategy Hubb
Business Mentor and Gateway to Asia Professional
Ryan is the latest addition to the board of the EIBC. He is the true definition of the word entrepreneur. Ryan has successfully founded and exited out of some very impressive ventures and is now giving back with time and knowledge to emerging entrepreneurs at the EIBC. Ryan currently is the founder of Strategy Hubb, Onstem Technology and MindGo.
Business is what makes the world turn. The thrill, chase and opportunities that lay just beneath the surface are the very things that get Ryan out of bed in the morning. The most exciting part of Ryan’s achievements has been his successes in Asia and Africa. He has successfully transitioned numerous businesses into hotspot pockets of Asia; predominantly South Korea, Singapore, Japan and Taiwan. His understanding of international trade, the distribution networks established and the capital partners he has aligned with over the prior 18 years are invaluable. With Ryan’s abilities on-hand we plan to aid the local entrepreneurs with the foresight and insights required to think global from the get-go. The choke point for most entrepreneurs is the capital raising component. Ryan has the first-hand experience at knowing how to pitch, to whom and for what amount.
There is an overwhelming amount of education on offer for Startup founders, but most of what is on offer does not seem to be the right fit for Australian businesses as the failure rates prove to be dominant. He believes in bespoke business modelling for every Startup even though similarities reside across the board.
For a more in-depth discussion with Ryan around topics like venture capital, market viability assessments, business strategy and incubation, seek him out at the next EIBC event or contact him directly on LinkedIn.
