SYDNEY, Oct. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Australia may not be renowned for incubating technology start-ups, but 20yr old Australian Brandon Evertz has certainly caught the attention of excited investors as the co-founder of a groundbreaking, global online video review platform: Big Review TV (www.bigreviewtv.com)

Big Review TV is the world's first video review platform.
It combines short video reviews with TV style review shows and peer generated video reviews made via the "Big Review TV" video app. The platform allows users to search and find cool, entertaining videos of places to eat, play, stay or shop anywhere in the world. It actively encourages users to contribute to Big Review TV content by videoing and uploading their own reviews to the Big Review TV platform. Naturally, being the brainchild of a 20yr old, the entire process is fully integrated with social media.
Brandon explains how he identified an exciting gap in the marketplace: "I've always used online video as a learning tool, and was totally amazed that if I wanted to find a cool place to eat, hang out or to visit, I had to trawl through heaps of text reviews. Like most of my generation, I want to actually see what my friends are recommending because you don't know if written reviews are genuine. Until Big Review TV there's been nothing in the review market that is video based, entertaining, shows real people and places, and brings it all together in one place"
Brandon secured seed capital in late 2011, with enthusiastic early round investors getting on board throughout 2012 and 2013. Less than 20 months later, Big Review TV Ltd and Republic Gold Ltd have announced a deal that subject to shareholder approval, will result in an Australian Stock Exchange listing as Big Un Limited. The news coincides with Big Review TV's official launch to the public.
The fact that Brandon is so young an entrepreneur hasn't deterred investors "Just because you have an amazing idea doesn't automatically guarantee success" he says. "From the start I've been blessed to have a small team of committed and very experienced mentors around me to help deliver this to market. I'm learning every day and their specialist help and guidance, will ensure that Big Review TV is a global success"
"Everyone we show the business model to simply loves it. We invested into proof of concept early. After producing thousands of videos, we commissioned leading independent emerging technologies experts to look at our concept and the addressable market (which blew our socks off). Now, our IT development is ready, we have growth capital and we're about to take this miracle global" says Brandon. "The dream has already become a multi-million dollar business, and we're just getting started!"
Big Review TV's free video app is available in BETA for budding reviewers to download on both Android and iOS, with updated versions being made ready for iPhone 6 in the next few weeks.
Big Review TV already has international buy-in. Today's official launch in Australia will be closely followed by official launch into the UK and US. The stylishly cool video review platform has caught the attention of large international brands, media companies and personalities keen to be involved with this innovative, disruptive start-up, so watch this space.
