The 2018 Griffin Accelerator Cohort

Little Products

Little Products believe that the built environment imposes limitations on a child’s independence. Their products help kids use oversized spaces better, excise their own abilities and allow them to do things for themselves. Their products enable kids to exercise their natural abilities and do things for themselves whenever they are ready and not just when they’re ‘big’ enough.

Brivvio

Businesses, marketers and entrepreneurs know that video is becoming the most influential and powerful tool for marketing their products and services. They also know the importance of establishing brand awareness. Traditional video production services cannot deliver to this growing need because they are people-powered creative services, with high overheads, expensive equipment and slow turnaround times. Just to add branding to a 90 second video filmed on an iPhone can take an hour or more, requiring specialist post-production software and skills. Brivvio have turned this into a 5 minute automated process with a web and mobile based platform.

Video SWMS

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) are a mandatory form required in many instances of construction work. The current system is plagued with many issues including low compliance rates, poor user engagement, and difficulties with monitoring. Video SWMS are developing a new way to complete SWMS utilising video technology to improve the current system and promote safety within the industry.

Future Super-Foods

The animal protein industry contributes heavily to carbon emissions globally, and with human populations increasing, there is a growing need for sustainably produced protein. Future Super-Foods have built a prototype modular cricket farm and have begun farming their own crickets for human consumption. Their aim is to simultaneously grow the hobbyist cricket/insect farming market and produce a high protein cricket-based powder to meet the growing demand for sustainable protein.

Stocks Blocks

The solar power industry is growing at an exponential rate, but the cost of installing solar farms remains high. Current installation methods require metal brackets to be drilled into the ground, these are heavy and difficult to transport. Stocks Blocks have invented a stackable, recycled plastic housing for PV panels. They estimate that they can reduce the cost of solar farm installation by up to 30% while also enabling remote locations to take advantage of the simplified transportation.

Griffin Accelerator

The GRIFFIN Accelerator is one of the most active startup accelerator programs in Australia. Based at the Canberra Innovation Network, the program provides space, capital, mentorship, and connections to some of Canberra’s most innovative emerging startups. After 3 months of intensive coaching, the companies pitch to investors in Canberra and Sydney. Since 2014, GRIFFIN has assisted 21 companies who are collectively valued at over $25m.
