Name: Christina Chun
Age: 26 (Born: February 1991)
Known for: 1SCOPE PTY LTD and Make A Mark Project (MAMP) – http://1SCOPE.COM
Christina Chun, 26, didn’t exactly have it easy growing up. Coming from a disadvantaged background with a disability and raised by a single mother who couldn’t speak English. Chun overcame these adversities to pursue her passion for advocating for young people aged 12-25, in Australia facing challenges of obtaining opportunities in the workplace.
1Scope was created and launched within four months. It is a central and virtual hub that connects these students to a plethora of opportunities available to them–employment, scholarships, training programs, and more–in the marketplace and allows them to categorically research and apply for these opportunities in one setting.
1Scope is a web aggregator and comprises of three core functions: market penetration (aiming to work with schools across NSW, 20 companies, 30 NFP’s and three universities), coordination (single database allowing easy management, review and tracking of applications and opportunities) and analytics (capturing immediate data on the user base to better guide the strategic direction of schools and organisations).
Before launching MAMP, Chun project managed a leadership program for 80 MBA students across 13 leading business schools, along with running programs in Romania for 200+ students.
“Deep down, the true building blocks are made up of every student who walks away with better self-awareness and prospects because of the solutions we’ve provided.”
What separates Chun from most young entrepreneurs? The understanding that genuinely listening and caring for stakeholders so she can build the best, most updated solution possible for them plays a crucial role in her industry. Going above and beyond to foster these relationships has paid off tenfold.
“At the end of the day, the price of retaining a customer is a lot less than getting a new one, especially when working with the next generation,” divulges Chun.
The art of persuasion as helped Chun become a leading provider of leadership solutions for female high school students and has enabled powerful collaboration with some Australia’s largest banks, universities and not-for-profits and the ability to pair them with over 1,500 students across NSW. In order to meet this growing demand, 1Scope was born.
In 2015 1Scope was the winner of UNSW’s Founderlab and is currently in discussions with a private investor for 7-figures. MAMP has engaged with students across 100 schools and received sponsorship amounts of close to $100,000.
