Danielle Pinkus

Head of Community

What do you do at Blackbird?

The Founder Success team's mission is to supercharge Australia and New Zealand's most ambitious founders. We do this by connecting our founders to other founders who are on the same journey, delivering content and events to assist them in building a great company, connecting the dots between talent and our portfolio companies and inspiring people to found or join a startup (Giants and Sunrise).

As the Head of Community, I create content, products and programs for the Blackbird Founder and Operator community, and the ANZ startup ecosystem along with my teammate Mel.

What did you do before Blackbird?

Studied sociology and anthropology, worked as a journalist for Cleo and Dolly magazines, edited a website for Nine Entertainment Co. and helped to launch a membership club for professional women called Future Women.
