Australia By Design; Innovation - "How it started vs How it's going"


How it started vs how it's going with our past series innovations, Funk Monkey Bars + Air Bolt.

We have recently caught up with Funky Monkey bars, a top 10 finalist in Australia By Design series 4, to see how their innovation is progressing since being featured on the show. 

Funky Monkey Bars express that their "involvement in the show has helped to strengthen their message of quality and innovation", as well as "adding credibility to their products and provided exposure to a broader market." They have been fortunate enough to remain in operation throughout the Australian lockdowns due to their primary manufacturing being in Perth. Meaning, Funky Monkey Bars has been able to keep up with the exceeding demands of families struggling in lockdown without delay!

The company has a contact-free procedure in place for its delivery. Once customers place their orders, it can be expected to be on the courier trucks the following day! Funky Monkey Bars has had the advantage of the lockdowns across Australia to cure boredom for families and offer fun within the home. Australia By Design Innovations congratulates Funky Monkey Bars as they excel in their promotion and progress.

The Airbolt was another impressive innovation of series 4 of Australia By Design Innovations, and they have also excelled since their participation in the series. The innovation "has grown substantially in recent years," according to Airbolt's founder, Kabir Sidhu, winning multiple awards for best technology and design along the way. They claim, "Australia By Design has helped to recognize the innovation that Airbolt has strived for." 

The Airbolt has become a trusted brand name in "worlds best smart travel locks" and has sold over 60,000 devices worldwide for multiple purposes, including; luggage and bike protectors. Their most recent release of a new GPS, the world's smallest GPS device, had an immediate $1.4 million worth of pre-orders on its Kickstarter campaign. The GPS device was designed to be compatible with the Airbolt to give its customers security and tracking ability. 

This innovation's upcoming plans for the future can be, "simply put, to continue to innovate and delight their customers." 

We wish the Funk Monkey Bars + Airbolt teams the best of luck in the following stages of their success through innovation! Although, we think you make your own luck!
