Our Team

Zoe Piper

Founder/Managing Director

Operating at the intersection of industry, research and government, Zoe has spent the past 20 years:

  • Creating/consulting to businesses that deliver social impact (her own ventures include manufacturing non-toxic paint and a blockchain-based provenance platform deployed in Asia)
  • Advising government on policy development (with a focus on innovation and economic development)
  • Building connections between industry and research (including developing a platform showcasing Australia’s research expertise)
  • Mentoring start-ups and young professionals looking to proactively shape their careers

Building partnerships, solving complex problems and finding innovative ways to keep things moving forward are at the heart of what Zoe does best. Working on a diverse portfolio of engagements sees her regularly shift between boardroom discussions with senior leaders, on-the-ground training of micro businesses in emerging economies, deeply technical conversations with leading researchers, liaising with tradesmen on construction sites, pitching to investors, policy discussions with Ministers and more. This background allows her to understand issues from multiple perspectives and ensures she bring a unique perspective to any role she takes on.

Over the years Zoe had the opportunity to share her knowledge on stage both domestically and abroad (New York, Vietnam and Manila), and study in the US, Europe and China. She’s a graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (serving on ACT Division Council), and a Fellow of the Institute of Managers and Leaders (formerly chairing the AIM ACT Regional Advisory Committee).

How Zoe can help:

  • Practical advice, connections and tools for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and changemakers
  • Unique insights as an NED or advisory board member
  • Speaking engagements (online or on stage) & guest posts
