Julie Demsey

Julie is the General Manager of SBE Australia, which runs the Springboard Enterprises Accelerator program that supports female lead tech companies in their efforts to grow and scale. Taking on this role felt like a natural fit for Julie who has mentored women working in technology throughout 20 years working in the Silicon Valley. It has always been important to her to support those coming behind her to help them navigate their careers, companies and to reach their full potential. 

Julie moved to Sydney last year wanting to have a hand in shaping the Australian startup community and help guide it in a direction of developing happy, healthy, sustainable companies. She has past experience starting her own tech companies, working for small start-ups as well as large technology companies. In addition to running SBE Australia, she continues to mentor women in San Francisco and Sydney.
