How the Edify Network happened ...

... We all live in a very busy world and the continuous bombardment of new technology, a myriad of social apps and interest groups all vying for our attention is eroding our most valuable asset, TIME.

There is an app for this and another app for that, but until now there has been no one place to consolidate and filter all the unnecessary business and social noise that collides with us daily.

As professionals from an array of differing industries our founders were acutely aware of this cacophony of modern commerce.


At the end of 2020 after a very difficult year of project disruption and having to adapt to a new remote way of doing business they came together to brainstorm with each other for an alternative solution to the way we network for business, search for resources and improve our skills.and how best to serve this solution to individuals, entrepreneurs and organisations. 

...and so the concept of the Edify Network was conceived!
