Brand we’ve worked with

While Engenesis specialises in building tech-based startups, crafting new business models and launching new ventures is important in many contexts. We have worked with leading entrepreneurs and founders to future-looking companies large and small. From early stage ideation and refinement to building products and taking them to market, below is a selection of the brands we've enjoyed working with.


FRANK Food System

A New Standard in Food Safety, Allowing for Temperatures to be Taken with Minimum Fuss and Non-Compliant Temperatures Actioned Straight Away.

The Premise

Across Australia each year over 1.4 millions instances of food poisoning take place. 120 of these instances result in death. In restaurants, cafes and other food businesses across the country, these are potentially preventable and unnecessary.


The Solution

FRANK is a food safety application that removes the burden of pen and paper, making it easier for food based businesses to record their food temperatures and ensure they are compliant.

The founder brings 25 years of food industry and auditing experience to the table. In particular, FRANK has been designed not to fully automate food safety processes, but rather to enhance the responsibility and accountability within the team to ensure greater awareness and ultimately, preventative action.


Key Venture Building Areas

Engenesis worked closely in the product design stage of FRANK and guided the validation process to dramatically reduce the risk of the venture before the go to market stage.

The product is successfully generating revenue and is expanding its customer base in Australia and has recently featured in community events such as the Maggie Beer Foundation conference.

Rolly Polly

Authentic Opinion Data Empowering Small Businesses.

The Premise

In the market research industry, one of the biggest issues is in sourcing unbiased information. Many methods to gather customer insights involve users incentivized for their feedback. Rolly Polly revolutionizes this by providing a low friction, social media based rolling poll system that allows users and companies to obtain user insights quickly and in a natural and inviting way.


The Solution

The way this data is brought to the market is an area the company is out to disrupt. Where currently only corporations and large companies are able to harness big data, Rolly Polly's vision is to provide a new level of accessibility to data-driven decision making for small and medium sized businesses.


Key Venture Building Areas

The team includes an engineer, data scientist and accountant. Being a young, highly energetic and visionary team, they bring great potential to a high growth industry.

The key area that Engenesis has worked with Rolly Polly in has been in commercialisation; from initial idea to prototype and development of the business model. In addition, being the first venture of the founding team, Engenesis has played a major role in building the human capital of the team. Ensuring that they are prepared for the entrepreneurial journey ahead, and are getting the most out of the team and their network of resources.

The team has completed the product design and continues to gain commercial interest as the product aims to be released later this year.

Agate

CryptoEconomy 2.0. The world's most comprehensive decentralized blockchain platform for mainstream crypto adoption.

The Premise

Originally cryptocurrency was created to make life easier when it comes to day to day trade. Over the years, it has become far more difficult to conduct day to day spending with cryptocurrency due to very high fees and long settlement times. This means that the original intention of cryptocurrency has not been fulfilled.

Consequently, although there has been a lot of attention on cryptocurrency recently, it has mostly been in the form of a speculative investment vehicle rather than promoting a faster, decentralised payment system.


The Solution

Agate is a holistic solution for the entire cryptoeconomy that allows for mainstream cryptocurrency use. In particular, it focuses on merchant facilities and merchant uptake which means that cryptocurrencies could be utilized in the economy with day to day trade and spending. It's key features include near-instant payments and markedly low transaction fees.

The Agate founding team includes a PhD in blockchain, a bank-grade expert in payment solutions and a serial entrepreneur with heavy experience in the retail sector. The team has created a very strong solution and has attracted great early-stage interest.


Key Venture Building Areas

One key area Engenesis has worked with Agate to achieve is in tailoring the message to a wider audience. Cryptocurrency is complex in its nature. To bring a solution like this to mass market involves not only technical solutioning, but also the ability for everyday users to understand how it can make a difference to them in daily life.

In addition, the partnership with Engenesis has given Agate an unfair advantage in the market when it comes to the level of development capability. The Agate solution is very comprehensive, including a user mobile application, merchant application, physical POS terminals, a secure payment gateway API, ecommerce plugins and an API suite. Building a technology team that could deliver this level of product alone is a major challenge which has been dramatically reduced inside the Engenesis and Agate partnership.

Agate has now raised over $1,000,000 in funding and is attracting global support as it aims to launch later in the year.
