The Play On! Story

It Started with One Person, In 2003...

January 2012
Co-founder Dan finishes the economics degree he promised his mum he’d complete, only to never use it and start his own clothing business (love you mum).
June 2016
Adam catches wind of Dan’s early success and slides into his DM offering help. Dan politely accepts.
August 2017
After collectively failing a number of business ventures, Dan and Adam finally have their first break. Together they build Lumio with a team of 7 other legends.

Lumio, previously called Foenix, was a social media analytics company that helped brands like Audi, David Jones and Red Balloon source legitimate influencers for social media campaigns.

“We were essentially the Instagram police and called out fake influencers left, right and centre. It was fun and all, but there is only so many bikini chicks you can look at on Instagram before you start losing your mind.”

Dan, Co-founder and CEO of Lumio

April 2018
Lumio gets acquired by German company, Influencer DB. Yeww! 🎉

“After this, we both took up golf on during the week and started eating fancy dinners at the local Country Club... Ha. This is not what happened at all. We suck at golf and love eating Guzman Y Gomez.”

Adam, Co-founder of Lumio

June 2018
Dan is shipped off to work with ze Germans as Head of Product at Influencer DB.

Adam decides to stay in Sydney and cut his teeth as a Product Designer with one of Sydney's leading design studios.

Whilst in Germany, Dan worked with with brands such as Daniel Wellington and BMW - Ja!

Adam worked with clients like Vodafone, TAFE NSW, Adobe and also won the 'Good Design Australia' award for his work on the Seatfrog website.

November 2019
After spending time apart, Dan and Adam begin to plan their next moves and rekindle their business partnership.

The name "Relume" is born.

relume

verb

[ri-loom]
To relight or rekindle (a light, flame, etc.)

January 2020
Dan moves back to Sydney to join a Global startup incubator called Antler. He convinces Adam to join him.
April 2020
🚀 relume launches
For various reasons, Dan and Adam decide to turn down a $100,000 investment from Antler and start their own business venture, without taking outside investment.

To do this they would have to build a company that would be profitable in its first year. Not the next Uber of *insert clever idea*.

June 2020
After building 11 websites on Webflow in under 6 weeks as a way to test a number of business ideas, Dan and Adam decide to stick to what they know best and launch Relume - a company that designs and builds beautiful Webflow websites.

“Relume was an opportunity for us to build a profitable business, not a startup that bleeds cash, whilst doing what we love to do. It also allows us to learn about all types of businesses and the problems they deal with. These are all opportunities that we could potentially solve for in the future. For now, our goal is simple, we want to build a kickass business which means we really want our customers and the Webflow community to succeed too.”

Today

After a four-year hiatus, the family-friendly sports festival that features Canada's favourite pastime — street hockey, is making a comeback. Volunteers from Vancouver to Halifax actively strive to have Play On! return in 2022. The positive, participatory sporting event and health promotion initiative will serve as an integral aspect of the country's recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The volunteer-led team operates under the guidance of decorated industry professionals who have been at the helm of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, 2017 Invictus Games, IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship, and other major sport events; along with the support of the likes of Hayley Wickenheiser, Connor McDavid, Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Kevin Lowe, and two-dozen-plus Members of Parliament and Senators (including four cabinet ministers).
