“Startups are businesses at their most vulnerable and uncertain stage,” says Claudia. “We all forget that a startup is run by people who are invested in an outcome broader than their roles, broader than themselves. My job is to make sure we guide them through the change that startup life brings and make sure the team doesn’t lose sight of the final destination.”

Claudia’s passion for building transparent, collaborative and effective teams will be important for the burgeoning growth of BlueChilli. She has 12 years of change and team management behind her, including time with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, global startup accelerator Startmesh and corporate startup educator Pollenizer.

There’s nobody better equipped to help us develop a culture of creativity and diversity, helping us embrace the rapid pace of change in the tech startup industry.

We’ve created 13 new startups and hired 14 new team members to support them in BlueChilli in the first three months of 2017. We all have our work cut out for us in ensuring we stay on top of that growth and knowing Claudia is dedicated to that task helps us all focus on what we need to achieve.

Claudia is also a startup advisor for BlueChilli’s SheStarts female founder accelerator program and the Dean of the Sydney chapter of micro-patronage social enterprise The Awesome Foundation.
