Ben R.

Hi, I'm Ben Richardson

I have a piece of paper that says I’m an Aerospace Engineer and a portfolio of startup companies and tech projects (two alive, two acquired, many dead) that I built by teaching myself to design and code

In 2018 I founded Onstage, a platform that connects people with speaking opportunities (like Linkedin, but for speakers). We're revenue positive, growing aggressively, and seeking early-stage investment

Before Onstage I joined Hubba Thailand, the largest startup ecosystem builder in Thailand (with interests in coworking spaces, technology festivals, and more) as the President and Chief Technology Officer

Prior to HUBBA I was providing my services as a Fractional CTO/CIO to organisations that either; can't afford a full time CTO/CIO, or are in need of an interim solution for short period of time

Previousely I was the CTO of a heavily funded ($33m raised in the first round) technology startup focussed on reforming the mental health care system across Australia and beyond called Innowell

Prior to Innowell I was the Group Product Manager of a small team (PwC Ventures) inside a big company (PwC) where I built disruptive web and mobile products including Airtax and Nifty

I co-founded and ran a technology festival called Future Assembly (acquired late 2019) that has since pivotted into a SaaS product to help festivals automate operations and customer experience

If you're seeking advice, I offer office hours  (reach out to my Personal Assistant). If you're seeking angel investment, Send me a pitch deck To learn more about my background and journey, check out my posts
