‘UNTIL NOW, THE AMUSEMENT INDUSTRY HAS BEEN STARVED OF TECH ADVANCEMENTS’, SAYS ROLLER CEO

Despite being a $50 billion industry, the amusement and leisure sector has been ‘starved of advancements’, according to Luke Finn, the CEO of Melbourne-based tech company ROLLER. Determined to be at the forefront of the industry’s tech evolution, Finn along with his co-founders – brother Mark Finn (CFO) and Will Nicholson (COO) – have seen their digital solutions embraced by venues in fifteen countries, including New York’s iconic Coney Island, along with strategic partner Fairfax Media.

Luke Finn gave Dynamic Business the rundown on ROLLER. He also spoke about the state of the entertainment and leisure industry (including the challenges faced by venue operators) and why – despite rapid growth of ROLLER – the company is only “at the tip of the iceberg” in terms of market penetration.
