Event information

It truly is amazing what can happen in a year … and beyond.

The final Female Founders event of 2023 is one not to be missed when we sit down with CEO and Founder of Aurabox, Dr Chaturica Athukorala. After being co-founded in 2021, Aurabox was awarded the National 2022 iAward Start Up of the Year. 2023 hasn’t slowed down, with their participation as one of 8 companies to be involved in the in the national MedTech Acutator Accelerator.

Chaturica set out to solve a problem that she faced multiple times a day as a radiologist – the inability to efficiently access medical imaging performed at different organisations for a single patient. Aurabox is a cloud-based medical asset storage and collaboration platform which allows doctors to access, view and share a patient’s entire medical imaging history in one place, regardless of where it was obtained. With Aurabox, she is providing a simpler process for everyone involved and most importantly improved outcomes for patients.

Over this lunchtime fireside chat, Chaturica will share the challenges, wins, business growth and her personal experience as a passionate advocate and leader in the healthcare industry and a Canberra female founder.

The seasoned Female Founder and chair of the Canberra Innovation Network, Hala Batainah will lead this lunchtime fireside chat. Hala is a true change-maker when it comes to women in innovation and is a standout among the business community in Canberra.

Let’s celebrate all that 2023 has held for the startup community and look forward to what 2024 and beyond may bring.
