Chief Growth Officer and Co-Founder - Lakeba Group
Darren Younger is the Chief Growth Officer and Co-Founder of the Lakeba Group. He holds this title alongside his Head of Lakeba Future Hub role.
Recognised early in his career as an innovator and technology entrepreneur, Darren’s role as Chief Growth Officer for Lakeba is to drive the vision and momentum of Lakeba’s Future Hub, a forward looking division of Lakeba with a focus on emerging technologies including Blockchain, AI, Machine Learning and Quantum Computing.
Established in 2015, Lakeba is an established technology innovator, or “Reverse Incubator” recognised for developing an innovative business platform for conceiving, creating, and commercialising at scale, disruptive, digital solutions. Based in Manly, Australia, the company has grown rapidly with a global team of over 150 people with offices in Italy, India, USA and UK.
Darren’s passion is to work closely with clients, partners and the Lakeba team to identify opportunities and solve problems which have global application. He has been instrumental in building Lakeba’s innovation to commercialisation model that identifies and filters early stage technology to deliver rapid commercialisation.
Prior to Lakeba, Darren co-founded ipScape, a cloud based contact centre solution which was one of the first investee companies of Telstra Ventures. He successfully exited ipScape in 2013 and the business continues to grow internationally.
Darren is a father of five and when not looking to change the world one innovation at a time, he is likely to be found at a children’s sports ground somewhere on the northern beaches of Sydney.
