[PODCAST] Startup Meet Corporate – Episode 17: REA Group
Startup meet Corporate, an original podcast by Startup Daily, takes a look at the way large companies across Australia and New Zealand approach innovation.
On this episode, Gina and Tricia chat about the business of real estate listings.
We have a chat REA Group’s chief inventor Nigel Dalton about the lessons he learned about disruption while working at Lonely Planet, where he said the company ignored the rise of the internet and “convinced ourselves out of jobs”, what innovation looks like at a 23 year old startup that’s now an ASX-listed giant worth billions, and why REA Group can’t just rely on the clicks coming to realestate.com.au and needs to keep reinventing itself.
