Asja Svilans

Accelerator Lead, Brisbane

Asja’s studies in Nutrition and Health Promotion, and immersion in Australia’s first Natural and Wholefood Chef Training program ignited her passion for sustainability for food security, food skills, and nutrition.

With over a decade of conscious work in and across small business, hospitality, health promotion, women’s advocacy and workshop/event facilitation, this experiential career has culminated in Asja’s creation of ‘The Grounded Way’.   This project is a socially responsible well-being hub, inspiring skill acquisition and inspiration to encourage women to build kitchen confidence and nutritional literacy and embrace a slower way of living to reap more happiness and productivity.  

Asja is a resourceful mentor, successfully bridging real life experience with actionable strategy and meticulous planning to bring small business and entrepreneurial dreams to life. With an accountable, creative, and compassionate approach she works closely with teams to work on scalable growth and facilitating change management to create more social impact.

Passionate about empowerment through financial independence, Asja relishes the opportunity to support Sisters in forging entrepreneurial solutions for themselves, their communities and future generations.
