• QLD's Chief Entrepreneur - Leanne Kemp 


    New Chief In Town 

    Move over Steve Baxter and make way for QLD’s newest Chief Entrepreneur, Leanne Kemp.

    Making a significant impact on numerous QLD businesses during his tenure, Steve has left some big shoes to fill for the founder of the blockchain platform Everledger and past TedX speaker.

    Leanne Kemp, the first female to fill the coveted role, brings with her 20 years of experience in the tech space and has said that she will be bringing a global focus to the role.

    Leanne Kemp has founded a number of businesses over the years with Everledger being her latest being created just three years ago.

    Everledger looks to apply blockchain technology to industries where transparency, trust and provenance matter most, from diamonds to wine, art, and more.

    Earlier this year, the start-up raised $10 million in funding and now employs more than 70 staff across offices in five countries.

    Over the past few years the Sunshine Coast has had access to all three Chief Entrepreneurs at various events held across our region enabling our business community the ability to engage with leading experts first hand.

    The Chamber were thrilled to host Leanne Kemp on Friday, 23 November for an impromptu breakfast which also included UNE Piece founder Carly Brown and Typefi Marketing Manager Shanna Bignell through a panel discussion centred around local to global business.
