ANTI

Helmets are life saving devices. Nobody drives without seat belts, so why do people
ski without helmets? The answers ANTI found were to do with comfort, ease of use and fit. 

To offer a solution to this worrying problem, the team of snow-crazy entrepreneurs at ANTI decided to develop a world first… a beanie that’s as safe as a helmet.

The hybrid headwear uses a soft material that hardens on impact. The wearer has the comfort of a beanie as they shred around the slopes but the safety of a helmet when they need it most.

After lots of research and development, ANTI now have the technology to create this product. They’re currently in the middle of a pre-seed round, with the aim of having a product in the crowdfunding market November this year.

The Can't Sleep app

The Can’t Sleep app helps individuals that suffer from insomnia to fall asleep faster and wake up feeling refreshed within just 10 days of use. This is achieved through music which is easy, convenient and has no side effects.

The relaxing music is scientifically designed to calm and improve sleep. It is unique because the user builds their own music, composed in real-time using algorithms so it never repeats, never gets boring and is never distracting making it more effective.

The app has been presented at the Australian Music Psychology Society and has won an award from the Melbourne Institute of Technology. The current version is available free to beta users with the live launch available in early July from the app store.

Theright.fit

theright.fit is the first online tool of its kind that simplifies the task of casting, booking, and paying talent using a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Traditionally, companies needed an agency to book talent for a campaign. This process was often expensive and created delays, with clients unable to afford the cost or spare the time to prepare briefs. theright.fit has simplified this process by providing a platform that offers direct access to talent, whilst giving clients full control. This double ended marketplace streamlines the booking and briefing process for clients and allows talent to have the widest opportunity to work. 

theright.fit has almost 7,000 people on the platform including leading international photographers, professional athletes, celebrity chefs, Miss Universe, and Home and Away actors. Theright.fit is currently working with brands such as Coca Cola, The Iconic, AAMI Insurance and Menulog, and international advertising agencies Havas Worldwide, WPP Groups and The Monkeys.
