Simon Anquetil, CTO of AppHappening (Former CEO eStrategy Group, Startup Advisor, Board Representative, and Founding Sponsor of StartupBus)
Simon is a veteran of the emerging technologies industry in Australia – with experience at home and abroad. He has successfully built and sold multiple companies in the technology industry and has consulted to a diverse range of businesses across countless industry segments. Some highlights of his career include consulting to global pharmaceutical companies, the big-4 banks in Australia, and now – his involvement with AppHappening.
Simon’s most recent ‘traditional’ business venture was a Software Development studio based in North Sydney, Australia. He was responsible for managing a team of some of Australia’s most innovative and experienced developers, marketers and project managers. It was during his time at the helm that he recognized the need for more sophisticated options for businesses trying to move into the mobile space.
Simon is passionate about the start-up scene and has been a speaker and mentor for several incubator programs around the world. He is a regular at global tech conferences and is a true triple-threat of Business, Technology, and Strategy. He was the Founding Sponsor of StartupBus in 2010 which now has almost twenty buses run per year.
When he isn’t immersed in the AppHappening and Startup ecosystem, he enjoys spending time with his young family and his two completely adorable, albeit untrainable, puppies.
