Founder and CEO Inspiring Rare Birds
Jo Burston is one of Australia’s most successful female entrepreneurs. She has launched six businesses, the standout being Job Capital which went from $0 to $40-million turnover in five years and has kept her on the list of Australia’s top 30 female entrepreneurs since 2013.
Jo has worked in partnership with the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) and Office For Women (OFW) as well as global brands such as Microsoft, Google, EY , PwC and XERO.
Jo has published three books on entrepreneurship which are used to teach a program she co-designed with the late Richard Seymour, Program Director, Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Sydney University, that allows students to ‘learn in action’ by seeing, thinking and doing like a founder and creating a business. Jo is passionate about the idea that you can’t be what you can’t see and uses these programs, as well as her globally recognised social impact business Inspiring Rare Birds, to inspire, support and educate women in business with the goal of providing equal opportunities in entrepreneurship and leadership for everyone.
