Jess Wilson is a repeat tech founder, her first business Stashd scaled to 130 countries, won numerous awards, saw her as a grand finalist on China’s version of Shark Tank x The Apprentice airing to 15M p/episode and was pinned by Forbes as one of 1,000 entrepreneurs under 30 to change the world in the next 50 years. When raising money for her startup, Jess was sexually assaulted by a prospect investor. She turned to an advisor to ask for guidance in which she was met with “Jess, put your head down, focus on the business, and when you’re ‘more successful’ you can do something about it then.” (Horrific advice). Jess decided to go against that advice and was determined to seek justice for what happened to her.
She met with dozens of lawyers and law firms and quickly learnt that the options available to her were not in favour of the survivor. The most common feedback being “We believe what you’re saying – but it’s not about the truth, it’s about the law and how the law is structured”. Given that this answer was not acceptable to her or for any survivor, Jess started a lawsuit, which took 18 months working along side Lawyers, Barristers, Psychologists, Queens Counsel and ultimately – Won.

Women Making Waves (WMW) is the first NFT project under Waves Tech Ventures – a female led and gender empowering venture business focusing on utilising Web3 technologies for impact. Co founded by Hayley Evans and Jessica Wilson in 2021, the pair met as neighbours throughout the Sydney Covid-19 lockdowns, quickly establishing a friendship grounded in shared values and a desire to harness technology for impact. With restaurants shut, offices closed – the two had time to brainstorm and stretch each others thinking as to what was possible, they quickly realised their skill-sets, connections and background crossover was perfectly complimentary.
Jessica, a successful tech entrepreneur with an innate ability to market to and wrap a vision towards millennial and Gen Z women, a stash of growth awards and pinned by Forbes as one of 1,000 entrepreneurs to change the world in the next 50 years and; Hayley, an investor and hyper-growth driven advisor whose portfolio includes the creation and scale of a $14B company’s tech investment portfolio, Global Board roles for YPO, Impact initiatives, and a training organisation in the safety and mining industry. The co-founders work with their startup team of Blockchain development specialists, NFT advisors who have built bluechip NFT projects and marketers to execute on the vision of the company and collection.
And so the story begins. TWO girls, ONE mission and a world ready for CHANGE.
