Bronte McHenry

Outreach and Events Associate, Startmate

What do you do at Blackbird?

I assist with outreach, events, comms and community (which are all the same, and completely different) at Startmate.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I was Chief Production and Sub-Editor at SmartCompany, where we reported on and for small businesses and startups in Australia and New Zealand. It was in my third year as a journo that I realised I wanted to be active in the startup community, instead of reactive on the fridges of it.

What ideas are you excited by right now?

What community will look like after COVID-19. What would a true media industry disruptor look like? The future of sextech. What our cities will look like in 5, 10 and 20 years.
