Originally born in Wyoming, USA on a cattle ranch and having spent 6 years during the Cold War on a Nuclear US Navy Submarine, Kurt has developed a solutions mindset to just about anything. After coming to Australia 29 years ago, Kurt has spent 23 years in senior management positions in various industries, and started 4 businesses in Australia (including his latest startup – QuickSafety).

QuickSafety was only 6 months old when it released its Electrical Compliance App on the Apple Store on 23 September. The product enables the electrical industry to deal with compliance, risk & safety. QuickSafety was one of 4 winners in the Australia Small Business Challenge in Feb this year – which included pre-seed funding, accelerator program by BlueChilli Capital and incubator space by CCIQ, Suncorp & Microsoft. Recently QuickSafety was selected by SeedStars Global as one of the top 8 seed start businesses in Australia. During the competition QuickSafety placed 3rd overall and is now part of the SeedStars Global Family.
Going from strength to strength as a sole founder Kurt is rich in experience as a startup founder.
