Late last year our principal child psychologist and CEO Dr. Kimberley O’Brien represented Quirky Kid at the iAccelerate@Sydney business networking event at Circular Quay.
Quirky Kid is a resident start-up of the iAccelerate program, which is a business accelerator and incubator facilitated and supported by the University of Wollongong (UOW). iAccelerate is the largest single University supported program of its type in the country, has supported more than 100 business start-ups since 2012.
Kimberley was one of the many distinguished guests present, including iAccelerate CEO Omar Khalifa and representatives from other iAccelerate resident companies – Me3d and Recovery Camp.
Kimberley introduced the important work we do at Quirky Kid and discussed out the journey from an initial start-up business to a successful publisher of therapeutic resources with clinics based in Sydney and Wollongong. Kimberley also reinterred the benefits of the iAccelerate for startups like Quirky Kid, including support and access to a network of like-minded business people
Additionally, Kimberley highlighted Quirky Kid’s vision of supporting and developing children’s social and emotional learning (SEL) on a global scale; introduced some of the Technology-Based products we are developing and discussed our research partnership with the University of Wollongong.
