You know the business but do you know the story?
The concept of a ‘Founder Origin Series’ began with a conversation between Scott Ko and Jess Fernandez. The two thought that in order to learn more about a person’s business you have to know how a person got to where they are.
The stories you will hear are honest and inspiring. Not only will you learn about these founders’ products or services, but you will also learn about their motivations.
Scott Ko, Founder of ColourSpace:
A former management consultant and Innovation Executive, Scott was struck by how little engagement there was with art in many corporate environments. For many, art simply merged into the background. He saw an opportunity to revitalise offices with art, to show people the benefits that art can bring, and make a positive social impact by supporting local, emerging artists.

Monique Daiga, Founder of Farley Avenue:
With a career spanning 12 years in Advertising and Fashion working for the likes of Publicis Mojo, DDB, Forever New, and Country Road, Monique felt she had the skills and the timing was right to quit her coveted Brand Manager role at Mecca Brands and go out on a limb to self-fund and build the fashion label she’d always planned to have.

Andrew Taylor, Founder of Spud Fit:
Andrew Taylor’s story went viral when the world caught wind of the then-36-year-old Aussie dad who had embarked upon a quest to eat only potatoes for the entirety of 2016. Armed with a degree in Applied Science (Human Movement) and a fascination with all things nutrition-related, the former high school physical education/health teacher spent six weeks researching ‘the perfect food’ before he settled on the humble spud. Andrew now spends his time coaching others through food addiction through his courses, informal and informative Youtube videos, his blog, and his steadily expanding Spud Fit community.
