About The Instructor
Steve Glaveski spent time working at both Macquarie Bank and Ernst & Young, where he consulted for numerous ASX50 and NASDAQ listed clients, before embarking upon his own entrepreneurial journey. He used lean startup principles to validate assumptions underlying his first startup, Hotdesk, which lead to a successful fundraising round, appearances in The Financial Review and The Australian and honours from Microsoft Australia, before growing the office sharing platform to almost 1,000 locations across AsiaPac.
He has since gone on to advise other early stage tech startups and is a co-founder of Collective Campus, sighting an archaic mentality of “the way things have always been done around here” as a key motivator for wanting to get into the innovation space. Steve is also a regular innovation blogger, having written for Innovation Excellence, Startup Grind, Venture Beat, Startup Daily and Shareable in addition to independently publishing thought leadership pieces on LinkedIn.
When not immersing himself in all things business and innovation, Steve can be found hitting weights in the gym, cycling down Beach Road, catching a live band on AC/DC Lane or enjoying some smashed avocado on toast at one of Melbourne’s many famous inner city cafes.
