Founded in the middle of a crisis by a bunch of mates

Swiftly was built to help small businesses get online as quickly and easily as possible, in response to COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re not essential workers, and we’re not on the front lines of the health crisis - but we’re techies, and we can build stuff.


We decided to build Swiftly because we wanted to help small businesses get back on their feet after COVID-19.

The first version of Swiftly was built as part of a national innovation challenge (or "Hackathon") called "Hack the Crisis" in a single weekend.

The feedback we received from the people who tried it inspired us to improve the app, and share it with more companies.
