Justin Dry

Justin Dry is an Entrepreneur, Angel Investor and Co-Founder + Joint CEO of Vinomofo, one of Australia’s fastest-growing companies.

Launched in April 2011 from a little garage in Adelaide, Vinomofo has grown quickly and profitably to a run rate of over $50m revenue, 400,000 members, and a team of 100.

Justin and his team have been proven to be game-changers in the wine industry, taking on retail leaders and challenging the ‘bowties and bullshit’ of the elitist wine coterie. Driven by the belief that everybody should be able to enjoy good wine, Vinomofo embraces the affordances of social media and digital content, to engage and excite a new generation of wine consumers.

Winners of Fastest Growing Company at the Deloitte Tech Fast 50 Awards 2013, Online Business of the Year at the Australian Startup Awards 2014, Best Website at the SmartCompany Web Awards 2014, Best Startup at the SmartCompany Startup Awards 2014 and Online Retailer of the Year 2015 at the ORIA’s, Vinomofo is focused on serious domestic growth in 2015, and exploring international opportunities. Justin was also recently awarded Spotify Young Entrepreneur of the Year at The Australian Startup Awards.

Justin is passionate about providing his team with a great working environment, and is experienced in cultivating positive workplace cultures and management strategies, based around the driving principals of being human. Justin is also a strong believer in the importance of outstanding customer service and harnessing the power of your customer base to promote your product, by developing your consumers into a community of prosumers.

Outside of his business endeavours, Justin is a self-confessed wine nerd and islomaniac.
