A self-professed geek Gordon has made it his mission to help build an innovative ecosystem for entrepreneurs in Newcastle and surrounds, especially those in the technology space, by fostering new and innovative startups.
Gordon’s mentoring specialties include overall business analysis, strategic planning, marketing, social and digital marketing, customer engagement, branding, market intelligence, product development and lean start-ups.
Gordon has built a brilliant network of startups, industry experts, investors and parlayed all of this into his ‘baby’ Start House. Start House is a regional incubator programme which saw 25 of the region’s most exciting and promising startups visit Sydney to drop in on Parliament House, spend three days talking to other startups, potential investors and industry experts at CeBIT and pitch to an audience of investors at an evening hosted by Ernst and Young. Start House will run on a regular basis as we take local startups from the ideation phase to commercialisation.
Originally from England Gordon has called Newcastle his home for more than 22 years and has spent most of that time immersed in the tech and startup world. He founded The Lunaticks Society which is dedicated to the promotion of emerging technologies and local talent.
