Georgia Beattie is the CEO of Start Up Victoria, the largest entrepreneurship group in Victoria. As CEO, Georgia has been charged with the responsibility “to make Victoria the number one tech destination in the Asia Pacific.”
Georgia is a successful, global entrepreneur & a pioneer of the single-serve wine industry. Georgia founded Single Serve Packaging in 2010 after attending a festival and asking for a glass of wine only to be told it was too hard to serve at large functions. Single Serve specialises in pre-filling wine in a shatterproof PET plastic wine glass for places where glass is dangerous or just inconvenient.
Single Serve had two brands Lupé; the fun young wine brand and Beattie Wines. Lupé was recognised by BRW as ‘Top 10 Start-up 2012’. The company also contract packages for Treasury Wine Estate under the Rosemount and Secret Stone brands which you will find in Australian’s major stadiums such as the MCG. Single Serve had offices in Melbourne, Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei. Georgia has a strong philanthropic interest with involvements on numerous boards.
With a passion for business & innovation, entrepreneurship has been a major focus in her studies domestically (RMIT) & with the #1 university of Entrepreneurship Internationally, Babson.
