Australia: Life on the Edge - Founding - Netflix
Student Edge was founded in 2003 in Perth, Western Australia by university students Damien Langley, Jeremy Chetty, Craig Chetty and Simon Loader. A student advocacy service, it offers Australians participating in secondary, tertiary education and apprenticeships/traineeships to register for Student Edge membership and take advantage of discounts, free job and internship search boards, career tips and well-being services. While it began with a $20 subscription cost as its initial business model, the model was upturned in 2006/2007, making the membership, as well as access to its exclusive deals and competitions, free. The company now relies on advertising and sponsorship for its revenue. Following this move, its membership flourished with major brands such as Apple, McDonald's, Boost Juice and Bankwest - along with numerous Government agencies - coming on board to sponsor the company. The rise in popularity led to the company's national launch in August 2010.
