"As a experienced founder, (Jonathan) has brought a rich understanding of the challenges and opportunities that a Startup faces and a unique capability to translate those for a public sector organisation with little direct experience in the challenges of early stage businesses. Jonathan is goal driven and was instrumental in our team receiving more than 500 detailed applications from startups, as well as the assessment and review process that lead to over 200 Startups receiving funding through Jobs for NSW."
Matthew Proft - Manager - Investor Familiarisation and Engagement at NSW Department of Industry
"It is very difficult to find someone that can operate effectively within a government organization but is also a legitimate entrepreneur with experience starting a tech startup and successfully raising Venture Capital etc. Jonathan is one of these rare people.
Whilst we officially worked in different teams, Jonathan overdelivered in his main role which enabled him capacity to volunteer working alongside our Sydney Startup Hub team in the design and delivery of programs and platforms that bring benefits to the 480 startups within our hub and can also be accessed by startups beyond the hub and across the state of NSW.
Jonathan is well respected by the startup ecosystem community and seen as a go-to government employee who "gets it" from the startup perspective but can also navigate the sometimes complicated government structure and systems for positive outcomes on both sides."
