NEW YORK CALLING FOR BRISBANE'S UNITA GROUP
Written on the 1 April 2016 by Laura Daquino
THERE'S nothing like Brisbane company Unita Group on a global scale, and that can be a little daunting for founder and managing director Rob Rowe.
"Globally, I don't know of any business doing everything we are, and I have contacts in New York who are reaffirming this to me a lot lately," says Rowe.
"If you are a small aviation company, you can look up Virgin and Richard Branson and think - ok, that's how you go big. But we don't have anything to look to.
"We don't have any businesses that have failed; if our clients fail, then we kind of fail with them because we have gone on the journey," says Rowe.
"That way, if a client pitches a certain kind of business, we are better positioned to offer genuine advice about their prospects. We won't let them blindly enter a crowded marketplace. An example is an idea for a burger business coming our way, which after consults becomes a South American cantina."
"There's nothing like this technology on the market and we intend on getting it out there to the right partners - even some of our competitors.
"This is about a much larger game of changing the face if how we do business in the tier 2, 3 and SME construction sectors.
"I don't know if I want Unita Group to ever go public and list on the stock exchange, but I believe our technology definitely will."
