Rollercoaster Digital - rollercoasterdigital.com
Rollercoaster Digital is a start-up bringing people, places and technology together, to make life easier, everyday. Using existing and upcoming technology in new and innovative ways, the team creates reliable, robust software and hardware products.
For two years, co-founders Andrew Snell (Coaster Group Pty Ltd) and Chris Shackleton have worked with national and international partners to search out problems waiting for a new solution, from managing social media interactions to introducing location sensitive advertising.
The company’s current efforts are focused on EventSTAK, an event management platform that takes away the hassle of planning events. EventSTAK lowers expenses and automates the process of changing and updating schedules and companion apps, improving productivity and ensuring a seamless experience for organisers and attendees.
The strength of the Rollercoaster Digital approach is the flexibility and agility of the team. In addition to its own products, the company develops solutions for partners and clients under the rcd.tech banner.
Debtkkr - launching soon
debtkkr is a crowdfunding site about helping people take a chance. Supporting campaigns will give the people running them the footing they need to start something big. People dig into their pockets all the time – sometimes it’s to help, others it’s for a cup of coffee or a drink. It happens for every day, real life things all the time.
That’s the point of debtkkr. The campaigns are from real people, living real lives, with something holding them back from being all they can be and taking them to the world. debtkkr don’t make the story – that’s up to them, and whether you think they deserve the cash is up to you.
debtkkr isn’t about people doing the same thing again, it’s about the next chapter – new, innovative and different. It is the chance to give someone the help to be a leader. It believes the people behind campaigns here could do it without debtkkr’s help – eventually. But why wait! A lot of people giving a small backing to a wide range of projects will change the world a lot faster than waiting for it to happen alone.
Fundraisers make their campaign, set their target and ask for something – they can be donations or there can be a reward. It isn’t about getting half funded in one go, more about a group of people all saying “hey, I like what you’re about - I’ll shout you a drink”.
Around the Corner Media - atcmedia.co launching soon
Around the Corner Media is a modern media outlet – about bringing the state of play from the front line. With news and articles from the next generation of changers and the ones not afraid to rock the boat, AtC is all about showing what’s coming next.
AtC Media is focussed on young professionals and leaders, showing years of experience isn’t everything and sometimes the best way forward is the road less travelled. It looks for stories and content from far and wide, as well as close to home. From business, personal branding and education, right through to next gen and community, stories cover what young, driven individuals want to know.
AtC will launch its web site in late 2015, with audio and video interviews and panel discussions to follow in 2016.
Co-Up - launching 2016
The Co-Up Accelerator will be a wholly owned subsidiary company of Coaster Group. It is designed to be a different kind of program for new businesses, focussed on growing as an entity, rather than getting to market and selling a product.
The Co-Up program will give new businesses access to resources throughout Coaster Group, business units and companies, they would not normally be able to afford or gain access to.
The Co-Up mentality is built on the belief that a great business is built on a good team with a good idea, not minimum viable product - route to market is important, but sustainable businesses also need strong foundations and the ability to weather challenges.
Co-Up is also about linking young business with each other to support their own growth, as such a strong network and online community will be part of Co-Up membership.
