Entrepreneur solving slow internet speed with fibre and fixed wireless network
In just two years, Elypsys has graduated from being a tenant to becoming a sponsor of the hub, home to more than forty startups.
To celebrate his achievements to date, Centre CEO Mark Paddenburg (left) hosted a networking event at the Centre last Thursday evening, presenting the young CEO with a Certificate in recognition of his contribution to the Sunshine Coast’s business community while Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington (right) congratulated Madjeric for taking on the telco giants that dominate the industry.
The coast has been plagued by slow internet speeds, lagging web pages, and poor connectivity for many years, a source of frustration in a business community now experiencing a surge of development including the new University hospital and adjoining medical precinct, construction of an international airport, a $400million water park, the AURA master-planned community near Caloundra, and the Maroochy Smart City complex.
Licensed private telecommunications carrier Elypsys is progressively building a fibre and fixed wireless network along the Sunshine Coast, with customers in Maroochydore, Birtinya,and Caloundra already connected.
Having steered Elypsys from a two-man startup rejected by the banks to an established entity with eleven full time staff, five part-time staff, and a small army of contractors, Madjeric was chuffed to learn that he is a finalist in the 2017 Sunshine Coast Business Awards.
