Stevan is one of Australia’s leading tech entrepreneurs. In 2007, in the middle of the GFC he conceptualised Dimmi on the back of a napkin and went on to revolutionise the Australian restaurant industry. In 2015, his startup was acquired by one of the great tech businesses of our time, TripAdvisor.
On the surface, Dimmi is the perfect text book start-up story - started in a garage, ran out of money, took on the big Goliath, won the battle, sold to a tech darling. But the true story is one of grit, passion and a true entrepreneurial spirit to make a dent in the world.
Stevan’s inspiring story is a raw & honest insight into the life of a start-up, how a small team can achieve remarkable things, how to crystalise your purpose, how to take on the big boys and win, how to embrace innovation & disruption and how an inspired culture can make anything possible.
He is an entrepreneur, a passionate tech investor, sits on the board of a couple of disruptive Aussie start-ups and strongly believes that the world (and our businesses) would be in a better place if we all acted a bit more like founders and a bit less like CEO’s.
He believes that life's short and that we should do stuff that we love and stuff that makes a difference.
He is an engaging & high impact speaker who leaves the audience wanting to achieve more - more in their role, more for their company and more in their personal lives. He’s anything is possible approach to business combined with
- Mastering Leadership
- CEO & Company Directors
- Entrepreneurship & Entrepreneurs
