  • Being recognized and respected by your peers, industry leaders and the business world is such an honour particularly when you’re in the startup phase. We’re very excited to announce that The Room Xchange has been included in the Anthill Cool Company Awards Top 100 List; (It gets better). We’ve also been named one of five finalists in the Startup category. Congratulations also to the other finalists – Amplify, AusStockPhoto, Basiq and SMLXL Projects.

    We’d also like to congratulate our PR agency, Arize Communications, for making the top 100 cool company list and also for receiving an honorary mention.

    The other categories are: Number Crusher, Global, Innovation, Big Kahuna, Micro Biz, Mobile Business, Online, Savvy Service, Social Capitalist and X-Factor.

    As James Tuckerman from Anthill says: “Cool Companies manage to stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are organisations that aspire to be admired. They are trendsetters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are cool!” It’s humbling to be considered a cool Startup company.

    Judging Process

    Anthill’s judging process was one of the reasons why we entered this award. Applications are assessed by an independent judging panel, including but not exclusive to experts in business development, venture capital, intellectual property and industrial design, in addition to serial entrepreneurs and representatives from Anthill and sponsor organisations. Judges are required to declare a conflict of interest, if necessary. It makes for a fair judging process, which makes the effort of submission worthwhile.

    Our People are Cool

    When we think about what it means to be a cool company, for us it’s the people who make it cool. We have an awesome team who on a daily basis, make it fun and interesting to lead. We love how we all care about each other both personally and professionally.

    Caring about people is at the heart of who we are and not just our team, but our community and Xchangers too. We’re all about changing people’s lives and changing the way we live. We’re building micro-communities in the most intimate place of all – home. We’re utilising resources that already exist. At the core of all of our decisions is how we’re caring for others and the planet we live in.

    We think that’s cool.
