Come and meet Charlie Gunningham and hear his incredible story, from humble beginnings as a school teacher to growing and selling a multi-million dollar digital business. From startup to trade sale in 10 years – the aussiehome.com story, warts and all!
At aussiehome.com Charlie Gunningham experienced pretty much all you could experience over the decade 1999-2010; from getting a new (GIS) technology to work on the internet, dealing with hundreds of real estate agents as clients, trying to get them to pay, the entry to major backed property portal players, web development, app development, marketing with no money, flirting with financiers, keeping angel funders happy, going without for years through to paying nice dividends for 5 years and an ultimate trade sale for cash and full time jobs for all staff in the organisation that bought the company. For Charlie it was an amazing journey, and he has loads of stories to tell!
Nowadays he loves mentoring and advising start-ups, writing about them in Business News and giving them free promotion in the ‘App/Tech business of the Week’ column. He’s on a mission to explain to his high net worth readership what is going on in tech land in Perth, and the wonderful opportunities that abound.
