About this event

Mahesh has held multiple executive roles in some of Australia's most iconic startups. He has experienced how to build a global Unicorn from the ground up as one of the earliest employees at Canva (SAAS) helping to scale to 200+ people. As part of the exec, he had the opportunity to drive operational excellence, helping Airtasker (marketplace) become profitable and go global. He was the COO at Simply Wall St (Fintech), as it hit an inflection point setting up the right foundations for it to accelerate and grow. Prior to all of this he had his own startup, which lay the groundwork for understanding startupland. He is currently an investor and mentor in Startmate, Australia/New Zealand's premiere accelerator, recently voted in as the 2nd most valuable mentor by the community and has had the opportunity to consult and advise many startups as they navigate their way to success.

He is back home in New Zealand, excited about helping New Zealand's startup ecosystem grow even faster!
