Stephen Minning— Managing Director of BrandCulture, Director of PAMand SEGD Board Member — has been selected for elevate61, an accelerator program to help companies fast track their growth into the United States.
Hosted by Advance and KPMG Australia, elevate61 participants will join a 10-day trip to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York in April.
In addition to his role at BrandCulture, Minning is the founder of Pam, a Sydney-based technology company that makes wayfinding simple by managing signs to create smarter spaces for people. Designers, brand managers and architects globally use Pam to design environments that are easy to explore and distinctively branded.
Through Advance, WeWork is sponsoring one company to join the elevate61 program in the US, and this year has chosen Pam, which was originally developed by BrandCulture, but has been operating as a separate company since February 2016.
“Joining elevate61 with a group of such inspiring entrepreneurs is a big opportunity for us to accelerate our growth in North America. We’re especially delighted that WeWork has offered to sponsor our trip – 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Pam,” says Minning.
The six start-ups, or “scale-ups” span various industries, from marketing technology and healthcare.
