BlueQ is on a mission to make junior sporting clubs safer and more efficient

Our amazing YBF members Nathan Merzvinskis and Hugh Krantz, founders of BlueQ, were recently featured in Startup Smart! BlueQ is an online tool that lets you store, manage, and verify your qualifications online.

From Startup Smart:

BlueQ offers a platform that digitises compliance checks, allowing clubs and organisations to keep this information up-to-date and in one place, CEO Nathan Merzvinskis says.

“We brought qualification data online so you never have the problem of losing [it and get] expiry reminders to renew those,” Merzvinskis tells StartupSmart.

Since founding the startup in 2014, Merzvinskis and co-founder Hugh Krantz have raised $100,000 in seed funding and secured a $30,000 grant from the City of Melbourne.

The startup is based out of Melbourne co-working space York Butter Factory and now has acquired more than 3000 users and 30 client organisations across the education, hospitality, healthcare and sports and recreation sectors.

Krantz says that until now junior clubs have had unreliable and ad hoc systems in place to ensure their trainers and volunteers are properly screened.

Congratulations to BlueQ for the feature!
