"I opened my cab door that morning, and watched the first plane crash into the building above our heads."


Antony Ceravolo was living the corporate life as an investment banker in New York's World Trade Center when he saw the 9/11 attacks happen in front of his eyes. It was the series of moments that would change the world, including his own. In the fallout, many investment bankers lost their jobs and Antony was forced to turn to his own business ideas.


Now, Antony is known for building global tech companies. First there was Red Bus Media, an out of home media network, and then LoveFilm, a DVD distribution and video streaming company that Antony sold to Amazon for around $AU300 million.


He could’ve comfortably stopped there. Instead, he moved home to Adelaide and built his next company, Sine, developing technology to make it easy for visitors, contractors and staff to check in to the everyday locations they attend. Sine has checked in more than 20 million visitors, working with some of the world’s biggest brands as well as every day businesses.


Antony shares his amazing story, as well as insights about winning early customers, scaling businesses and dealing with growing pains, why he has chosen Adelaide to build his global business .. and much, much more.


Antony is speaking at Southstart in 2018, a conference that celebrates the collision of people, ideas and technology on 22 and 23 November 2018 in Adelaide. Make sure you join and support Adelaide’s startup community.

It has been quite some time since our last episode (sorry), we took a break from Rooster HQ to focus on our REAL businesses.


But now we’re back with our SouthStart series, which we’re excited about. We’re interviewing some of the stars of the Southstart Conference, which celebrates the collision of people, ideas and technology in Adelaide on November 21 to 23.


And first cab off the rank is the man behind SouthStart in 2018, Craig Swann. SouthStart fell into the hands of Craig and his business partners last year, and he has done an amazing job pulling together a world class event and activating an 'interesting' startup community in Adelaide.


Craig is a highly successful global innovator, in his own right. The Canadian founded companies in New York City, including award winning interactive agency CRASHMEDIA and the internet’s first online music studio, Looplabs.


Millions of people have benefited from Craig’s innovations, including Steve Jobs, who demoed Looplabs for the launch of the Safari Browser at an Apple Keynote. Craig has since become an industry thought leader in the interactive music space; authoring books, speaking internationally, teaching, curating technology events and developing and licensing customized online music experiences for top global brands.


He has received special recognition at SxSW and has won the prestigious Webby Award.


Before we get into Craig’s fascinating story, make sure you open your browser now and check out southstart.co.
