Partnership with Liquid Web Assists Next Place with Next Level Search Innovation, Attracting New Investors

Lansing, MI, March 19, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Sydney, Australia-based Entrepreneur, Dan Tarasenko, announced today that real estate search engine, NextPlace.com.au, that will add a sizeable investment from John Corrie of Morgans Stockbroking and Michael Millner, Deputy Chairman of the publicly listed Brickworks Limited to the backing it currently has from US-based Web Host, Liquid Web’s, Incubator Program (https://www.liquidweb.com/incubator.html). While the amount of this contribution has not been made public yet, it appears that it will significantly impact the manner in which people search for real estate in Australia and New Zealand.

Launching in April of 2013, Next Place quickly secured a partnership with Liquid Web’s Incubator Program that gave the company access to server tools and management assistance from experienced engineers that paved the way for the building of search tools previously unavailable to its market. Combining its extensive database with a complex hybrid environment, enabling geospatial “Draw My Search” capabilities, Next Place has given users access to over 300,000 property listings from more than 200 real estate websites and 8000 agents. This development has led to a functionality, reach and usability in advance of any resources currently available to those searching for real estate in Australia and New Zealand, which, Tarasenko claims, is what drew the attention of major investors.

Next Place Director, Dan Tarasenko on His Company’s Partnerships:
“Today’s announcement of new investors for Next Place is tremendous news for innovation in this space. The rapid development and increased profile that led to this news, however, was aided in great deal by the resources our web host, Liquid Web, gave us access to via their Incubator Program.”

The combination of high level financial investors and technological backing that Next Place has benefited from may signify the future for many Internet-based startups. The web incubator model touted by Liquid Web, as well as a number of other new technology-focused entities targeting emerging startups, focuses on creating partnerships for the purpose of highlighting mutual development, eschewing the the established construct of exchanging resources for a proprietary stake in business interests. This manner of partnership allowed Next Place to achieve accelerated development while maintaining the freedom to negotiate with major investors, in order to take the next step toward becoming a fixture in the real estate search marketplace.
