“Be whole in everything. Put all you are into the smallest thing you do.”

Filipa sees entrepreneurs as drivers of change and innovation and believes that supporting them is a great way to have a positive impact on peoples’ lives. Prior to moving to Sydney, she worked with founders and startups in Europe, Africa, and Southeast Asia. She is a strong advocate for entrepreneurship as a development driver and loves to talk and write about it.

Originally joining BlueChilli as the leading Programs Coordinator, Filipa’s role was to ensure that our programs and campaigns run seamlessly and successfully, delivering exceptional results for both our partners and startup founders.
