Changes to roles at StartupWA

It is with regret that we announce that after a short tenure, Sharon Grosser has resigned from her role as CEO of StartupWA, effective 21st April 2017.

While Sharon and the board of StartupWA share a common desire to support and grow the local startup ecosystem, our approaches and focus differ.

While assessing the best way to resource the activities of StartupWA going forward, the volunteer members of the board will continue to pursue its mission and objectives. Specifically, StartupWA will continue to champion the ventures of tomorrow by:

  • Advocating on behalf of startups with stakeholders, including government,

  • Promoting innovation and startups as a driver of growth and diversification for the WA economy,

  • Quantifying and reporting on the WA startup ecosystem,

  • Facilitating connections and communication with amongst the community.

The board appreciates Sharon’s contribution to the community, and wish her well in her future endeavours.
