New Business

Rooftop Cinemas

In 2007 Rooftop Cinema opened its doors atop the iconic Curtin House on Swanston rooftop cinemaStreet in the city. Providing a combination of art house film, fresh food and beverages, fake grass, deckchairs and the best view in Melbourne, it quickly became one of the most sought after entertainment experiences in the city, attracting tens of thousands of patrons annually.

On the back of over $1.2 million dollars of positive publicity in its first season, Rooftop Cinema has grown substantially year by year, attracting greater sponsorship revenue and stronger ticket sales – all while maintaining its cachet and reputation as one of the coolest and desirable outdoor entertainment experiences in the world.

Our objectives are simple: We set out to build one of the most beautiful cinema experiences in the world, underpinned by a robust sponsorship model and marketing strategy to drive revenue. Now that we have achieved that with one site, our objective is to extend the concept to numerous sites in numerous cities.

2009 Business of the Year – 2 winners for this year

KeepCup

Hot Coffee. Cool planet!

Our love for a great takeaway coffee is costing our environment clearly.keepcup

Unsatisfied with the alternatives to replace disposable cups, we designed the KeepCup.  KeepCup is the first barista standard reuseable coffee cup.

KeepCup was founded with the intention of reducing the 550 million disposable cups that are discarded to landfill annually in Australia.

We are attempting to build a business that we, both ourselves and our team enjoy working in because we are making a positive contribution to the world.

The marketplace for reusable alternatives is vast and largely untapped due to the unattractive and unsustainable design of most competitor offers. Like the “greenbag”, the KeepCup has the ability to draw attention to reuse and the individual’s capacity to make a positive contribution. In the end the KeepCup is just a fantastic choice, the important decision is the one to reuse.
