For International Women’s Day, we are celebrating that our company, reKnow, exists due to female leadership.
The vision and experience of our CEO, Suzette Bailey, has been critical to our success in attracting seed funding, delivering products to market and building a network of relationships that supports and empowers our business.
Having a female cofounder and CEO places us in a small group of Australian startups, and an even smaller minority of startups globally.
In 2021, only 19% of Australian startups receiving funding had at least one female founder, despite many reports over the last decade highlighting that gender diversity in the founding team greatly increased the probability of startup success.
As reKnow works to help organisations solve knowledge waste and sustainably reuse and repurpose existing knowledge assets to generate value, we are taking particular care to support diversity in all forms.
Last year 60% of our team were female, and we continue to aim for a 40/40/20 ratio as we grow.
On behalf of our CEO and the entire team, we wish everyone a happy International Women’s Day.
