About this event

For our August (2022) event, we are fortunate enough to have not just one, but TWO amazing speakers joining us to share their experiences, expertise, and insights.

On the 18th of August, join us as we chat to Michael Priddis (founder of Faethm aI) and Kristy Chong (founder of Modibodi) about how they were able to start, grow, and ultimately sell their companies for over $100M.

David Kenney (Startup Grind Director) will be moderating an in depth, fire-side chat with Michael Priddis and Kristy Chong.

Michael founded Faethm AI in 2017, a SaaS company that built AIs, data analytics and products to inform automation, future of work and COVID risk management actions by government and enterprise customers.

Since it's launched, Faethm has operated profitably, with enterprise clients in over 23 countries. 

They secured VC funding in 2020 to drive growth before being acquired by Pearson Plc, the world’s largest education company, in late 2021.  

Kristy Chong is the ex CEO and Founder of Modibodi, life-changing absorbent apparel brand. 

Her vision with Modibodi was for all people to have higher expectations of the physical, emotional and ethical comfort they get from clothing, forgo disposables, and feel empowered to live more comfortably in themselves, without limitations.  

Kristy has won numerous awards including the 2018 NSW Business Woman of the Year Award and 2021 Veuve Cliquot Bold Woman award - all while being a Mum of 4, and an advocate for sustainability, women’s health issues and rights. 

Recently, Modibodi was sold to global health company Essity for AUD$140M. 

Join us, and learn from the experience and insights of two amazing founders, who have built (and exited) two amazing businesses.
