We’re invested in
Australia’s future.


In response to Australia’s growing startup culture, we decided to bring the country’s most talked about emerging companies together under one roof.

Vest is the place to discover and celebrate the best of Australia’s forward-thinking ideas. With the government’s renewed focus on innovation, it’s time to highlight the startups that are putting us on the map, making us leaders in our fields, and driving both economical and cultural growth.

Designed and built by Josephmark – a digital ventures studio that believes in the world-changing power of a great idea.

Founded 2015
Trusted, reliable childcare on demand.

Founded by husband and wife team Samantha and James McKinnon, Sittr is an online service that makes finding childcare safe and simple for busy parents. All carers are reviewed by the Sittr Team with only carers that pass Sittr’s high quality standards being approved. Carers are also covered by Sittr’s Public Liability insurance and payments are handled through the app. Like many families we’ve personally felt the struggle to find care for our three young children and so we built a product that we would be comfortable using ourselves. From then on we have received lots of positive feedback from families all around Australia.
