Dr Catriona Wallace

CEO & Founder
Flamingo

Catriona completed the SBE by Springboard Enterprises Tech program in 2014.

Having run a successful client services firm, and having identified a gap in the market, Catriona founded Flamingo, an artificial intelligence platform built to help the financial services industry sell products online. An alumnae of the SBE by Springboard Enterprises Tech Program, Wallace says the program has been fundamental to her success.

“I had zero idea about anything to do with technology and anything to do with capital. The SBE program helped me understand all of those inflection points, how to pitch, who to approach. It was how I learnt about the importance of capital and was fundamentally part of my startups growth story.”

Listing on the ASX in late 2016 for $24 million, the company is now trading with a market capitalisation of around $52 million.
