The QuickSafety Journey
Having worked in the electrical / electronics industry in since 1980, and then consulting back to the industry in 2009, it was dealing with clients’ frustrations that Kurt saw an opportunity to make a difference and alleviate the pain the sparkies and the businesses were feeling on the ground.
In Feb 2016 an opportunity came up to pitch for the Collaborate Small Business Solutions Competition and he took it with both hands! He was selected as a finalist, then went on to place in the top 4, gaining sponsorship by BlueChilli, CCIQ, Suncorp and Microsoft.
QuickSafety now has direct access to a wonderful team of business mentors, processes, office space in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne and a crack Dev Team!
In only 7 months they have created and placed in the App Store the QuickSafety Certificate of Compliance app. QuickSafety was selected in the top 8 Seed Startups in Australia for the SeedStars Sydney Competition. At the end of the week QuickSafety placed 3 rd out of the top 8 and is now part of SeedStars World!
