AliciaEdge

When Alicia Edge and her husband Daniel started their family, Alicia asked the question, how could she continue to work in her specialised sports dietetics field without needing to be located within an elite sporting hub? Her answer was to design an online platform which enabled her to serve individuals of all competition levels without any geographical restriction. And so Compeat Nutrition was born.

Over the past 18 months, Alicia and Daniel have evolved their idea with the vision of empowering each client, providing an unrivalled service which reshapes the dietetics industry and promotes the value of the profession. Compeat achieves this by rethinking the way people receive nutritional education, and by cutting through the saturation of food advice particularly via social media.

The Compeat team were accepted into and completed Slingshot's Icon Regional Accelerator in 2017, which re-shaped their journey and pushed them to think far more at scale in order to create a long-lasting difference. Come hear Alicia’s story live at Three76 Hub (or at DSA-18 for the webstream), and learn how this entrepreneur is setting in motion a movement which could revolutionise an entire profession.

About Startup Stories

Startup Stories takes place every Thursday from 1 pm at the University of Newcastle's coworking spaces Three76 Hub (Newcastle) and DSA-18 Hub (Williamtown)*. Startup founders talk candidly about their experience as an entrepreneur and business owner – the highs, the lows, the wins, the mistakes, the whole enchilada. Startup Stories provides real-life examples of the different stages of the startup journey, creating a forum for startups to share and learn but also for the community to see tangible evidence of entrepreneurship making a difference in our region. #i2nStartupStories

*One space hosts the startup founder speaker while the other hosts a live webstream of the talk.
