The ACS, which acquired River City Labs last year, says Fetaui `will take up the role at River City Labs after running her own startup, CheeHoo, a fully integrated life and virtual personal assistant app designed to help people hustle smarter and stay connected to people in their lives.
As well as building CheeHoo, Fetaui has extensive experience in the finance, IT and Insurance industries, having worked as an independent program consultant servicing global and national organisations including Hewlett-Packard, Bupa Australia, MBF and the Australian Taxation Office.
“I am thrilled to be moving into an industry that promotes my two passions. People creating and living dreams and progressing innovative technologies for the advancement of our society,” Fetaui said.
“I am very excited about her appointment and look forward to working with Pauline and expanding the River City Lab offering for entrepreneurs in Queensland”.
The ACS acquired River City Labs Group last year, including the operations of the RCL accelerator and Startup Catalyst, with a commitment to invest $7.5 million in ramping up River City’s support for tech entrepreneurs.
The ACS says that since River City Labs’ 2012 founding, more than 700 start-up founders have set up office in the Brisbane space which has hosted more than 1,000 start-up and community events, and run programs in partnership with some of Australia’s biggest companies, including BOQ, CUA, Suncorp and Telstra.
The RCL Accelerator has graduated 28 Queensland-based startups including Travello, Maxwell MRI and Punta.
