    Fishburners

    Important: Space is limited, so please reserve a spot! — Unless you've been living under some kind of a startup-shielding rock with adblocker on, you may have heard of Koala (koala.com). They’re bringing furniture into the digital age and have become Australia’s next generation e-commerce success story. Plus, they’re saving Aussie marsupials along the way. What’s not to love? Dany Milham (Koala’s Co-founder and Co-CEO) launched several successful businesses before growing Koala to $13m revenue in their first 12 months and $100m in the first 3 years. Catch Dany for a chat about Koala’s hyper-growth and global expansion, structuring and scaling an agile marketing engine, and building everything from scratch – including their fulfilment platform. We’ll be giving away a Koala sofa valued at $1,550 (incl. GST) on the evening. To enter, just post a question for Dany on this page and attend the event on the evening (because you will need to be there to claim it). The most interesting, thought-provoking question will be decided by Spaceship and the winner will be announced on the evening.
