In 2012 the founder of Goingtoplaces.com Geoffrey Dening opened Beds in Robe, with 80% of guests international visitors, working and holidaying in Australia. Travelers had to rely on the local Visitor Information Centre’s to find local services, places to go and things to do in the area. No cohesive, easy access, universal mobile/tablet information service was available.
In 2016 the Robe SA app was published and Geoffrey began developing the information App ecosystem with a core of website and mobile app utility for efficient information supply. Then publishing Kangaroo Island, Barossa Valley, Limestone Coast and Great Ocean Road apps. The following three years of data collection and user growth delivered the proof that this platform was a popular, efficient and versatile information resource. Established with the built in capability to deliver improved functions to experience all Australia offers.

In 2017 attending the Entrepreneurs Expo in Adelaide promoting his App Ecosystem, Geoffrey first saw the activity in the Startup Industry that was delivering innovation to enterprise and commerce. This led to being accepted in the inaugural 2018 New Venture Institute/Flinders University Limestone Coast Accelerator. The advice and encouragement from the course content and the mentoring was excellent fuel for continued success.
