Founder @ Fillr, 1Form and Humming Puppy
Chris Koch is the CEO & Co-Founder of Fillr. After some initial false starts and early start-up failures more than 10 years ago, Chris, along with his best friend and business partner Chad Stephens, went on to create 1Form, an online tenancy application platform.
1Form, which launched in July 2006, revolutionized the process of applying for rental properties in Australia, capturing more than 90% of the residential rental market and over 2.5M tenants in the process. In January 2014, 1Form was acquired by the REA Group for $15M.
Chris’s latest venture Fillr, which is ‘auto fill as a service’, was launched in April 2015 and has already facilitated over 3M transactions globally. In October 2016, Chris secured $5M of Series A funding from major international venture capitalists, led by SoftBank China, Alibaba’s single largest investor.
In January 2015 Chris also Co-Founded Humming Puppy with his partner Jackie Alexander.
