Steve Killelea, Founder of the Institute of Economics and Peace, might not be a household name, but he should be! The impact that he has had across both business and philanthropy is remarkable.
He founded, ran and listed Integrated Research, a half-billion dollar tech business (which he still majority owns and Chairs). Not content with that, he has ploughed multiple millions of dollars of his own money into the Institute of Economics and Peace which analyses the impact of peace on the world economy. In 2013 the founding of IEP was recognised as one of the 50 most impactful philanthropic gifts in Australia’s history.
We are fortunate at Innovation Bay to hear from some remarkable people in an intimate surrounding. This was one of the best Sydney Focus Dinners we have hosted and everyone left feeling suitably inspired.
