The Core Team
Techfugees Adelaide is currently led by:
Jeannine Malcolm, Adelaide – Australia
Jeannine has a Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical) from the University of Melbourne. Her career spans the highly regulated pharmaceutical and biotech sector as well as experience managing multi-million dollar capital projects in the wine industry. Jeannine has strengths in strategic planning, operations, process improvement, equipment and process validation and team management. Jeannine has been applying her interpersonal and organisational skills to the community services sector for the past few years but has always maintained a strong interest in innovation, technology and social entrepreneurship. Techfugees came to her via Twitter where soon after, she found herself organising the first Techfugees Hackathon in Adelaide, South Australia.
🙏 We would like to warmly thank Annie, Anne-Marie and Nicky for having run several hackathons and meetups across Australia since nearly day one.
