The Unicorns Podcast connects you to some of the best and brightest founders, CEOs, executives, business owners, VCs and inspiring leaders who make things happen and inspire others.
Hosted by media and PR veteran and CEO of Mojo Media, Justin Kelly, we chat to leaders on the front line on how to get started, what it takes to build a successful business, how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.
In this instalment, Justin speaks with Steve Barnett, co-founder and CEO of GreaseBoss. The Queensland based start up was founded by three engineers and has already signed a contract with mining giant Glencore. Additionally, it was also accepted into the world-renowned Y-Combinator accelerator program in the United States.
For machinery owners, GreaseBoss is a simple lubrication management system that prevents equipment failure and reduces maintenance costs.
In this episode, Barnett talks through how the business started during a Hackathon, how Covid actually allowed the time to fine tune the product, the global applications for the “unsexy” product and the blue sky potential for all things GreaseBoss.
