2020 category winner

Shelli Trung

Managing Partner

Shelli has led investment decision making for two venture firms in the last five years including REACH Australia, which is backed by Second Century Ventures, one of the largest proptech funds globally with a portfolio of 100+ investments – a remarkable achievement given that only 13% of women world-wide are involved in venture investment decision making (as quoted at the RAISE 2020 global summit). She has also actively championed state grant funding for Queensland start-ups and enabled over $3m in funding to start-ups for the QUT CEA Creative Tech Fund.
