Female Founder Fireside Chat with Entrepreneur’s Collective

Wednesday, 2nd November, 6pm

Join us as for a fireside chat with the Founder of Auris Tech & Kafoodle, Kim Antoniou and Founder & CEO of Alicia J Diamonds, Alison Cooper.

Kim Antoniou decided to buy herself a computer (which she fixed up herself) and learned everything about computing and software language. She went on to start Perfect Fish Advertising with her brother but the business later went into liquidation. However, her entrepreneurial spirit meant never giving up, soon after, she created Kafoodle to educate restaurant staff and diners to make informed decisions after a near fatal incident with her husband after a serious food allergy in a restaurant.

Kafoodle is an application that helps foodservice industry manage and communicate their food allergens, calculate nutrition and control costs, leading to a safer and more transparent food environment that benefits both the business and the consumer.

Alison Cooper started Alicia J after realising that many 20-30 years olds were overwhelmed by the prospect of purchasing an engagement ring and they don’t know there’s various factors to look at when choosing the perfect diamond and at a good price. Inspired by this, she trained at Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as a diamond and gemstone specialist to enhance the knowledge she had already acquired. 

Our brilliant entrepreneurs share their challenges and words of wisdom in succeeding in the market.
