In 2014, 60 percent of the internet is video. Genero is one of the leading online video content crowdsourcing platforms, connecting filmmakers to brands. When the likes of Yoplait, Miller Beer, eHarmony, and all of the major record labels have needed video content, they have turned to Genero’s growing community of 275,000 plus creative filmmakers and videographers. CMB realised the potential of Genero early, becoming a seed investor in February 2012 and continues to assist the company on its capital raising and business development efforts.
Roller is a simple and intuitive ecommerce booking provider for nightclubs, restaurants, bars and other hospitality businesses. With a presence in Australia, USA and Canada, and organic growth in countries such as Indonesia, Singapore and New Zealand, Roller’s network has already grown to more than 500 venues. CMB formed the investment consortium for Roller in September 2011 and has since invested in multiple rounds to help fund and support the company’s ongoing growth.
The Yellow Pages for today, ServiceSeeking.com.au is fast becoming the go-to site for Aussies looking to hire local businesses to help them when they have a problem.

Over 4.2 million quotes have been delivered and 1.2 million jobs listed on ServiceSeeking.com.au worth more than $1.3 billion. CMB saw the potential in ServiceSeeking.com.au in its formative years back in 2007 prior to its investment in November 2010.
Sold to TripAdvisor in 2015. Featured in some of the most prominent media, including The Wall Street Journal, Dimmi provides a real time solution to restaurant reservation services in the Australian market. CMB has completed multiple capital raisings for Dimmi and was responsible for helping grow its affiliate and white label partner network as well as managing major partnerships and attracting key partners. Dimmi’s investors include Telstra’s Applications and Ventures Group and Village Roadshow, a transaction CMB managed in February 2012.
Online shopping would be flawless if it wasn’t for the delivery part – missed deliveries, items left in the weather, products that never show up. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistic, three out of every four internet users in Australia shop online. That’s a lot of parcels with the opportunity to go missing each year. ParcelPoint fixes all this by providing the largest network of more than 1,200 extended-hour parcel pick up points across Australia. CMB has invested in ParcelPoint over multiple funding rounds since its initial investment in April 2012.
365 docobites takes the world of social content and turns it on its head with daily mini documentaries (or docobites) produced around the world by its dedicated team of filmmakers. Backed by the Sydney Film School, CMB became involved with 365 docobites in November 2013 to give its young filmmaker founders the funding to pursue their unique content plan and grow an engaged audience. During the year the team will be travelling across five continents to create the most engaging short documentaries as it grows its online community.
