Tash Jamieson

UNSW Founders Global Program Manager & Startup Coach

Hi there! I’m Tash, and I’m the Global Founders Program Manager here at UNSW Founders. As that title suggests, I’m here to support you on your journey to world domination *maniacal laugh*. 

I have almost a decade of experience working internationally representing Australian business and diplomacy abroad, and deep networks into China and India. I also sit on the management board of a few international organisations, so know a thing or two about board governance, international team management, and leadership dynamics. 

I truly believe that diverse teams make for the best companies. I am a part-time fitness instructor and musician and have advised recording artists with global crowdfunding campaigns and immersive event experiences. If you also need help with anything public speaking related, including pitching, I’m here to help!

My recommendations:

READ - Indistractable by Nir Eyal author of Hooked, the book that taught Silicon Valley how to design user behaviour, teaches us how to get our attention, and precious time, back!

LISTEN - The Pitch by Gimlet. Each episode takes listeners behind closed doors to the critical moment when aspiring entrepreneurs put it all on the line for a panel of world-class VC’s.

WATCH - RuPaul’s Drag Race. RuPaul is my role model and entrepreneurial idol. Going from a club kid who once slept on city benches in Central Park, to now heading a media entertainment empire that has shattered boundaries and spanned decades. Also, the author of my all-time fave quote: “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”
