Eleanor Carey is a dual world record holding adventurer and entrepreneur. In June 2018, she spent 62 days crossing the Pacific Ocean by human power in a 25 foot ocean rowing boat, and prior to this cycled solo across Europe.
Originally a physiotherapist working across paediatric and acute hospital settings, Eleanor then shifted gears into the business world becoming the co-founder and CEO of The Generator Innovation Hub which she successfully sold in 2019. She is also a Startup Catalyst Mission Leader and has accompanied startups, policy makers, investors and community leaders to Silicon Valley and London.
Eleanor now shares her experiences of adventure and entrepreneurship - the good, the bad and the ugly – speaking in organisations and schools. Eleanor is the Adventurer In Residence at QUT, working with students, staff and alumni.
