About Advisorate

Founded in 2017, Advisorate is a professional services marketplace that matches companies with the industry-specific skills they need to promote and grow their business. The Advisorate marketplace has been customised to provide an online platform for companies requiring cost-effective and time-efficient access to professional consultants in the specialist fields of public and investor relations.

The team

Based in Sydney, Advisorate is headed up by Co-founder Angela Silveira. Originally trained as an accounting professional, Angela has moved to the front-line and manages Advisorate's direct relationship with the clients and consultants.

She has extensive experience in account management in Australia and Brazil, and a track-record for outperforming targets, through new business development, high quality client account management and effective client retention strategies.

Managing all aspects of client and consultant listings, Marc Kemmery is Advisorate's Community Manager. He completed a short internship at Stone & Chalk, and continues to assist the fintech hub as an Operations Coordinator on a part-time basis whilst undertaking an undergraduate degree majoring in Public Relations and Marketing.

Our mission is to connect companies cost-effectively and efficiently with specialist public and investor relations professionals in every major financial market.

The idea

The journey started by in late-2012 when Enrico TAM was bootstrapping his first business in the tech consulting field. He noticed that many businesses couldn’t afford agencies or full-time employees but still wanted to build new features and grow their business. He tried hiring freelancers but soon noticed that finding reliable, consistent and experienced contractors with the right profile and availability was also a challenge.

Fast-forward to 2016 with significant advancements in technology, along with a material change in attitudes in the workplace towards hiring consulting professionals, and the context for Advisorate was set.

Advisorate positions its consultants as a premium online network for public and investor relations services; matching specialist consultants with clients that value quality and professional standards so they can create meaningful projects together.

Cofounded with industry practitioner Bill Kemmery, Advisorate was soft launched globally in 2017, formally launched in Q2 2018.

Advisorate has taken out everything that "doesn’t matter" in the traditional consulting business, then exploited technology to focus on what we believe is really important to clients - the cost-effective delivery of quality advice and support services in an efficient manner. And unlike many other professional servicies platforms, we offer remote and in-market support to clients and we review - and the system ranks - all consultants on the network.
