The Accelerating Entrepreneurs program helps high-growth businesses scale across borders and accelerate growth. We work with the entrepreneur on their most critical business issues, and connect them to experts and networks that can help them scale. The group travelled to Shanghai, where they received coaching from market-leading entrepreneurs and participated in the Strategic Growth Forum China.

Workible technology powers the largest network of connected job platforms in the country, including the company’s own employment marketplace, WorkibleJOBS. Driven by her love of challenging the status quo, Alli is an award-winning businessperson and young entrepreneur with a proven track record, including having been recognised as one of Australia’s ‘Top 50 Female Entrepreneurs Under 40’ by Startup Daily for the last two consecutive years. Her background in journalism, PR and marketing has seen her work with a variety of companies in the US, the UK and Australia – from multinational companies to small businesses. Upon moving to Australia in 2009, she used her journalism training and previous experience working as a media researcher to run her own media and marketing consulting business. It was in the early stages of starting her consulting business that she was struck by the flaws in the way people found work and workers, and she decided to dive headfirst into the exciting world of technology to reinvent the way people connect around employment. Today, Alli is recognised as a true thought leader in the HR and recruitment industry, and Workible is an Australian start-up success story with strong growth and a very large global market opportunity.
