Ashleigh Bishop

Co-CEO , Bagboard

Ashleigh is the Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Bagboard, the new conscious shopping platform which empowers people to promote, spend and save with sustainable brands. The innovative concept, backed by Sky Ocean Ventures, puts consumers in control of advertising through the power of tech, simply by incentivising people to use (and reuse) eco-friendly paper smart bags, featuring campaigns from brands who are kind to people and the planet.

Ashleigh was most recently at McCann London, with experience in creating fully-integrated advertising campaigns for global brands such as Pandora, Nestlé and Nespresso.

During her time building the business as a female founding partner, Ashleigh has been deeply passionate about diversifying the male-dominated tech industry. She’s advocated and made space for women in senior leadership and management roles in the company, along with often male-dominated tech development roles, and has been proudly vocal about her female entrepreneurship and gender equality in a variety of publications and podcasts, including TechRound, StartUps Magazine, The Flex Network, Found & Flourish and Sustainably Influenced. Ashleigh was also recently recognised as a ‘Top Female Entrepreneur to Watch’ in 2021 by TechRound and won the ‘Transforming Technology’ category in the Campaign Female Frontiers awards.
