unKEMPt Podcast Episode 7: Jamie Wilson on startups and cybersecurity


Cryptoloc founder Jamie Wilson explains how he built one of the world’s best cybersecurity startups right here in Brisbane.

It’s raw, it’s real, it’s unKEMPt – a podcast for founders, investors and entrepreneurs hosted by Queensland Chief Entrepreneur Leanne Kemp, the founder and CEO of Everledger.

This week, Leanne talks to Cryptoloc founder and chairman Jamie Wilson. Jamie started his professional life as an accountant, before pivoting to cybersecurity and building the Cryptoloc Technology Group’s highly secure platform. Cryptoloc was recently chosen from a field of 22,000 companies around the globe to be named one of Forbes’ 20 Best Cybersecurity Startups to Watch in 2020; it was the only Australian company to make the cut.

Jamie talks to Leanne about his deeply personal reason for making the switch to cybersecurity; how he built a globally recognised startup in Brisbane; and why he’s so passionate about putting people back in control of their own data.

Then, in this week’s Leannesplaining segment, Leanne explains what every founder needs to know about failure – and reveals why failure can actually be its own reward.

UnKEMPt is hosted by Leanne Kemp and produced by the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur and The Content Division. Like what you hear?
