Jo-Ellen Burston and an all-star cover of trail-blazing entrepreneurs and CEO’s recognised by Westpac’s 200 Businesses of Tomorrow!
At Job Capital today we are excited to acknowledge our CEO and founder Jo-Ellen Burston and her peers on an all-star cover (The Australian – The Deal) of amazing entrepreneurs and CEO’s for Westpac’s 200 Businesses of Tomorrow! This is all about supporting some of our youngest companies in a long-term (12-months) nurture project based on mentoring, training and general support.
Jo is highly committed to supporting entrepreneurialism in adults with a particular focus on supporting women in business/leadership (see Inspiring Rare Birds). Jo has also launched The Pronesis Academy, which is an ‘edutech’ platform solely focused on curriculum aligned, in-school teaching/coaching to nurture the future of Australian business and through our children.
As described in the Australian’s The Deal (April, 2017), Westpac is reaching out “As the bank turns 200…” so as to support the growth and development of Australian start-ups. This will be achieved through a mentor-ship and guidance program on how to deal with the modern disruptors (technology, changing market demands, low barriers to entry for competitors) all business now face.
The program has at it’s heart the concept that long-established businesses and leaders have as much to learn from, as they do to teach, our new wave of emerging business leaders.
