SMARTSessions: Dealing with Investors Part1: Managing the Entry with Alli Varnes

About this Event

Alli Varnes, our US-based Expert in Residence for 2020, will be joining the SRI in March for Part 1 of our 2-Part Zoom workshop focused on all you need to know about dealing with investors.

Alli and her business partner Fiona Anson founded JobGetter just 9 years ago, which took a whole new direction to job seeking and recruitment – and specifically giving back to the startup community. Powering the largest connected network of job sites in Australia, JobGetter used machine learning and AI to give job seekers continual feedback on why they missed out on a job and helps them identify skill gaps so they can work on fixing them.

After the decision to move on from JobGetter in 2019, Alli has had the full experience of working from start to finish with investors and will share with us her advice on ensuring this is a beneficial and structured experience for founders of startups.

Both workshops will be held via Zoom and Alli will also be offering 1:1 sessions for SRI startup founders seeking more personalised assistance and support for the investor process. For a session with Alli, please email Dimity at

Part 2 will take place in June and will be focused on managing the exit with investors.
