Entrepreneur’s Story with Sean Simmons and Dave Fleming

May 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Kicking off the first of the Entrepreneur Stories for 2019 we are joined by Sean Simmons and David Fleming co-founders of ZipID.

Startup with the end in mind: ZipID founders tell how they did it.

In 2014 a small team of Brisbane-based innovators flipped the onerous task of ID proofing on its head. ZipID is the world-first digitised and mobilised ‘come to you’ ID services model. ZipID works by sending a mobile representative to you to perform an identity check using a tablet workflow and cloud-based platform tailored for business and consumer users.

After seed funding and a successful go to market ZipID was wholly acquired in 2015 by global big data company Equifax (formerly known as Veda). The founders are still retained to continue product innovation and scale-up inside their corporate acquirer.

About Sean:
Sean’s career focus has been scaling, strengthening and sustaining technologically-advanced businesses including stints at Amazon.com and Wotif.com. Sean is the Head of ZipID and is a reformed lawyer.

About David:
David has co-founded several start-ups and new business divisions across a variety of industries for companies at various stages of commercialisation. David is the Marketing & Sales leader at ZipID. David is also a mentor at River City Labs.
