This Aussie startup’s claim to fame is its ability to enable ecommerce between small merchants across social networks without the need for complicated and expensive ecommerce websites. The app allows merchants to “get paid with a simple click”, making the process of buying and selling merchandise online personal and simple.
The startup gives power back to merchants by processing payments on behalf of businesses in a speedy fashion. Merchants simply add products to the site, once uploaded they receive a link which they can then share on social media to their customer base and audience.
Persollo has been making waves in the ecommerce space and have been selected for the coveted Telstra’s muru-D accelerator program.
2. Let’s Meet At
Founded by entrepreneur Loretta McGill after she moved from New Zealand to Melbourne, Let’s Meet At is a startup with a passion for food and eating locally. The startup is a food lover's heaven and is focused on the concept of engaging friends, travellers and lovers of great food to connect, meet and discover local restaurants and cafes together.
After crowdfunding $7,000 in March 2016 to get the service started, Loretta is set to expand her social network to continue to connect people over a mutual love of food.
Similar to a modern matchmaking service but for lovers of food, users simply sign up, create a bio packed with info about your food loves and then connect based on their proximity to one another at local foodie venues across Australia.
In June 2015, Utillix creator Oliver Morrissey crowd funded just over $40,000 to kick off the world’s first site excavation mapping tool that conveniently provided instant, 3D real time location visuals of utilities and infrastructure based underground.
Utillix is a subsurface utilities and infrastructure mapping application that pinpoints underground utilities ahead of digging to ensure the safety and security of construction or maintenance works. The app shows users what is beneath their feet and aims to remove the guessing game out of infrastructure maintenance for both commercial contractors and residential users.
Breaking water mains and hitting electricity lines should be a thing of the past with the app’s intelligent ability to capture images and videos and upload them securely for reference when needed. 2D and 3D views of utilities are captured to ensure the safety of all workers and to avoid unfortunate accidents that can inevitably occur during the maintenance or construction process.

The app looks to eliminate wasted time for startups and allows users to market b2b without the massive costs associated with traditional marketing and business development.
