About this event

Startup Grind Auckland welcomes Ezel Kokcu. The 25 year old serial entrepreneur is on to her third startup ‘Passphere’; An analytics registration platform for expos, conferences and large scale events. Ezel also co-founded STQRY; an exploration app for museums and cultural sites. She grew STQRY to over 50 people, raised over $7 million in VC funding, and over 800 customers on the books before selling the company in 2016.

Ezel is a seasoned mentor who won the Deloitte Fast 50 Rising Star regional award in 2015. Recently she was a finalist in the Westpac Woman of Influence Awards in 2017 and the Ministers International Leadership award in 2016. Passphere builds upon her previous two startups STQRY & Non Stop Tix which were both sold in the last 2 years.

Some topics we'll be discussing: innovating in the event industry and GLAM sector, raising capital, scaling businesses, and Ezel's journey.
