About Darren

Background

I am a highly motivated professional who loves to help my employers and clients achieve unparalleled growth.

My current focus is helping to democratise the process of launching new ventures with turn-key startup solutions. The vision of IndustrySwarm is to, through this work, stimulate economic growth - as this will help to improve the standard of living of people across the globe, eliminate poverty and lift us out of this and any future recessions.

I have 13+ years of experience across two payments companies (Zip Co and PayPal) and an eCommerce company (Grays eCommerce Group). I started at Zip when there were just 40 employees and was one of the many who helped it grow to hundreds of employees AND enter the ASX300.

One last note - I'm looking for a co-founder. Development for this project is underway. Please reach out to me if you would like to help.
