Three… Two… One… TAKEOFF
Haven’t you heard yet? One10 has officially launched!
On Friday the 11th the team gathered together to celebrate and share the news with the Australian Community.
We received a visit from Philip Dalidakis, Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation & Trade, who candidly remarked,
Organisations like One10 have an important role in building the [startup] sector’s capacity and developing innovative and technology based solutions to these problems.
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!
By getting behind local startups, social enterprises and not-for-profits, One10 is looking forward to working with incredible people who are inspired and driven to tackle societal issues of today.
The excitement of the day was further elevated by the announcement of our sponsorship by Ernst & Young, which has agreed to work with One10 to provide services, experience, and connections to promote and improve the skills of its community and create new relationships that will help the startups achieve their goals.

The most common challenge listed by the not-for profit sector is funding, the second is people or time. Its time to dispel the myths around successful not-for profits and start innovating.
Australian not-for-profits take on the toughest social and environmental challenges we face as a nation. You are increasingly providing essential services to our communities on behalf of government, and perform important activities to create a more inclusive, equal and sustainable world. Not-for-profits are an integral part of Australian society and currently employ 10% of the Australian workforce, or more than 1 million people.
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the World Economic Forum on the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I was selected to be one of the fourteen Global Shapers (an initiative of the World Economic Forum with over 500 Hubs around the world) to represent young voices at the event. I applied to go because I wanted to know more about South East Asian nations due to their proximity to Australia.
Geoff Gourley, Founder of One10, shares the story of his journey to launching the company.
As an engineer graduate I never envisaged myself going down an entrepreneurial path. I was keen to work within a large corporate and climb the career ladder. That person seems a million miles away from where I am today. I chose engineering for a few reasons, a strong one being the range of potential careers that you could have without being restricted to a certain field, but instead have transferable skills.
One10 has just started working with a social enterprise that gives you an excellent reason to follow through on your promises – Promise or Pay.
Promise or Pay’s vision is to inspire millions of people to be the best they can be and, at the same time, encourage and facilitate much needed donations for charity.
One10 Founder, Geoff Gourley has recently been selected as Innovation Mentor to the CSIRO Lean LaunchPad Accelerator.
