BiTQ Story

In 2014, Craig Bryden started a company called Tetraquark and was initially a sole provider to a Queensland Government agency. Over the next few years, Craig had successfully delivered numerous contracts himself along with the assistance of sub-contractors. In May 2017, David Smulders joined Tetraquark as an independent contractor and assumed the role of Sales Lead.

On 1 July 2017, David acquired 50% ownership and Tetraquark was rebranded and BiTQ was born. Craig assumed the role of Chief Executive: Data Strategy and David assumed the role of CEO.

The business today, continues to grow throughout Australia and beyond, challenging the way in which companies make their data useful.
