Do you have an electrifying business idea that could turn you into one of Australia’s hottest new entrepreneurs?

Thanks to the digital evolution and ongoing advances in mobile technology, your ideas could become reality right now.

Successful entrepreneurs, including Rebekah Campbell (pictured) from Hey You and Jo Burston from Inspiring Rare Birds, are some of the guest speakers at Mobile-ising Women in Business, a conference to strike up conversation and inspiration around the power of mobile technology for business, to be held in Brisbane on Tuesday 22 March.

Hey You

The event is presented in partnership between the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ).

Bricks and mortar business models are making way for creative, elastic enterprises that tap into our modern habit of being constantly connected through mobile devices.

Now that the contemporary customer is constantly – and only – a screen-swipe away, business success depends on being just as flexible and available as the people who want to purchase.

We live in exciting times, and there have never been more opportunities to innovate, create or launch an entrepreneurial career.

Rebekah Campbell is a serial entrepreneur and is Co-Founder and CEO of Hey You, Australia’s largest technology application for cafes and quick service restaurants.

Hey You is one of the cutting edge apps transforming the way we discover and interact with storeowners and order and pay via our mobile phones.

Mobile technology is opening doors for incredibly inventive and responsive business models that have less expensive entry points and add significant value for customers.

Jo Burston is the founder and CEO of Job Capital and the entrepreneurial movement Inspiring Rare Birds, which works to promote opportunity for women in entrepreneurship and has a global vision to inspire one million more women entrepreneurs by 2020. Women are increasingly attracted to entrepreneurial careers, as they value the flexibility of running their own businesses.

With advances in mobile technology, it is possible and potentially profitable to run your business from anywhere, any or all the time, and to reach a global audience with equal ease from either a capital city or regional Australia.

There is only a short time left to get tickets for this upcoming opportunity to learn from the best and brightest how you can emulate their success.
