Rappsio joins Southstart Accelerator

23 Aug 2016

Rappsio has been accepted as one of four Adelaide based technology startups to join the inaugral Southstart Accelerator program.

“This is an exciting opportunity to work with 30 experienced technology entrepreneurs and other innovative Adelaide based startups.” said Rappsio founder, Chris Were.

“Rappsio has spent over 12 months of R&D developing the Rappsio cloud framework and is entering an exciting phase as it bring developers onto the platform.”

The successful SA technology entrepreneurs include;

Vinomofo founders Justin Dry and Andre Eikmeier, Newsmaker founder Leila Henderson, Google Australia engineering director Alan Noble, co-founder of Strategic Data Management and Kloud Solutions Geoff Rohrsheim and Intelligent Software Development founder Don Perugini.

“We believe these firms can grow into global companies,” said Acumen Ventures’ partner Shane Cheek, an investor who was also part of the selection process.

“Founders with passion and focus are the key ingredients we select for. Most importantly, all four start-ups are already engaging with customers and markets so the first sparks of a real commercial opportunity are already there and it’s our job to pour some more petrol on those burning embers and really get the fire burning.”

The start-ups will be based free at the Majoran co-working space in the city to participate in the workshops, speakers’ sessions and other aspects of the program.
