Veromo launches ‘What’s stopping you?’ campaign
Australian startup Veromo — a ‘startup for startups’ that makes it easier for entrepreneurs to start their own business — has this week launched an online video campaign and $30,000 contest to find out what’s preventing wannabe Australian entrepreneurs from starting their own business.
Entitled "What’s stopping you?", the campaign features interviews with over 30 people from a wide range of walks of life.
View the campaign’s launch video here:
Each month from October through to December, Veromo is asking Australians as part of the campaign to share the single biggest obstacle standing between them and starting their own business. All entries are automatically entered in the running to win a Business Startup Programme worth $10,000. At the end of each month, the most inspiring entry, as chosen by the Veromo team, will be crowned the winner and awarded the $10,000 package.
The prize package includes:
'“We shot the campaign from two perspectives: the budding business owner who wanted to start a business but had a blocker in their way and those who had started business before, sharing retrospectives on their initial fears and insights into those fears now,” Veromo co-founder Luscheyne Mellon said. “Our eldest is a gentleman who is 80 years old and still running a business.”
The campaign’s content will be curated into a roundup of Veromo’s most loveable interviews, which the company plans to release each week over the campaign’s lifecycle.
“At some point or another, we've all experienced fear. It’s the sole deterrent to people taking the leap and starting something new,” Ms Mellon said. “For many, the thought of starting a business is thrilling, for others it’s terrifying.
“Each of these stories are relatable and compelling insights into people's’ fears, what help they need to get their business off the ground and what impact starting a business would have on their lives.
“As the campaign gets traction, we will then release the ‘wisdom bytes and retrospectives’ on the Veromo blog and a content series titled 'Obstacles and Stepping Stones', where Veromo talks to a handful of business owners about what held them back and how they overcame different challenges to reach launch.”
The campaign will wrap up with visual content and campaign insights and unlock the number 1 thing stopping Australians from starting their business.
Producer Aaron Bush and director Nick Pollack, of Buff Productions, a division of Buff Dubs Pty Ltd, are behind the campaign's video. The campaign itself was produced internally by Veromo.
Developed from hundreds of hours of speaking to small business people and hearing the same frustrations again and again, Veromo hopes to change the way Australians put their dreams of working for themselves into action. Veromo gets your business off to a flying start by streamlining and automating most of the setup process of starting a business. Its “NameFinder” tool helps you choose a business name, then does an instant availability check – not just for the name itself, but web domains and social media accounts too. If you’re good to go, you simply enter your details into its “OnceForm”, and everything you need is registered at once: your ACN, ABN, business name, domain name and other relevant taxes. Within an hour, you’ve officially started a business. There are three packages available for purchase at launch: $799 for a company registration, $299 for a partnership and $249 for a sole trader.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
