GrabOne / Shop HQ
8 August 2014
Season 03 Event 06
Shane Bradley grabs every opportunity that comes his way, now venturing into the world of vertical sites with the founding of Shop HQ. Known for being the man behind the success of online couponing giant GrabOne, Shane left that behind when he sold it to APN News & Media in 2012.
Going completely broke at the age of 23 didn’t stop Shane. Instead, he bounced back to successfully start three online channels – Finda Ltd, Sella.co.nz and GrabOne. Currently, he is involved with Neigbourly.co.nz, an initiative to create connected communities, and Sugarcard.co.nz, a small business customer loyalty programme.
He says that “giving up doesn’t exist in his vocabulary”. The vast businesses he has been involved in throughout the years is testament to this. Being customer-oriented and in touch with people are essential for Shane, he’s even known to personally take customer calls and complaints on occasions.
