Stuart McKeown

Stuart is co-founder of an SaaS app called Gleam, he’s previously worked for startups in Melbourne including Hitwise (which was acquired by Experian).

I’m an entrepreneur based in Melbourne, Australia. I’m 36, and I enjoy electronic music, marketing, growing businesses and my family. I’ve been an avid digital marketer for the last 14+ years.

I’ve been working with my co-founder John on various projects and ideas since 2009. Gleam is actually the 6th app we’ve built.

There is no such thing as an overnight success. Anyone that tries to tell you otherwise just wants your money

You can find me lurking around on a few social networks (if you want to follow me):

Twitter – You may wonder where the handle comes from, more on that below.
Linkedin – If you want to connect for Business reasons
Soundcloud – Writing music is how I unwind, almost like a form of meditation for me
Instagram – I post semi irregularly, mostly family stuff

I've recently worked with the talented Team from Foundr magazine to put together a course on how to grow your email list.

I write music in my spare time under the pseudonym Soda Klop:

Well, I’m originally from Belfast in Northern Ireland. When I moved to Melbourne, people used to joke about a certain scene in the movie Snatch (due to my strong Irish accent).

I ended up getting called Gyppo by a lot of my close friends, and hence why you see it in some of my social handles 🙂
