Simone Eyles

Simone Eyles is an entrepreneur who uses new technology to solve old problems. 

Holding a graphic design degree, Simone began her first start-up in 2011 after a conversation with friend (now business partner) Marz about how fantastic it would be to order coffee from your mobile phone. 

After a year of development 365cups went live and today 365cups has had over 1.2M orders through the system, is used in 3 countries and has made over 8M for its clients. 365cups can offer branded and franchised versions of the flagship App as well as custom development. All made with love from Wagga.

After years of building 365cups Simone discovered her why, helping people to use tech to work for them as well as a passion to boost regional Australia through disruptive technology and supporting other start-ups. 

Awarded the inaugural Beyond Bank Entrepreneur Grant for her co-working space ‘Working Spaces HQ’, Simone has created an environment that fosters entrepreneurship and economic development in the Wagga Wagga region by providing a co-working space and professional development programs and work opportunities to ensure members get the leg-up they need.

Working Spaces HQ grew so much in its first 6 months, it had to relocate to premises 3 times the size, a custom space was fit out and #WSHQ continues to enjoy rapid growth and is now exploring franchising the concept.

When she’s not growing her business, Simone gives back to the community through mentoring, speaking engagements and most recently becoming a Director on the Country Hope board.
