With the tech platform built out of Whitehill’s digital agency, Hatching Lab, it took around three months to get Boxbird operational and bring on the first customer.
This year seems to be the year of the self storage startup. First we got Melbourne’s Boxly, then came – and went – Rocket Internet’s SpaceWays, and Boxbird. Now Melbourne startup Spacelli wants to take a stab at the market.
Launching online self storage startups seems to be all the rage this year, with Rocket Internet-backed SpaceWays launching in Australia in February, and Melbourne-based competitor Boxly following soon after. Whether consumers are actually taking to them is a different story – SpaceWays recently shut up shop and headed back to London.
Following its foray into the Australian market two months ago, Rocket Internet’s self storage startup SpaceWays now has a competitor, with Melbourne-based startup Boxly launching today.
In its bid to become the largest internet conglomerate in the world outside of China and the US, another Rocket Internet backed startup officially launches into the Australian market today aiming to take a slice of the countries $752 million self-storage market.
