How can you create a sporting goods exporting company from a small bedroom in a family home?
Just ask Mick Spencer, CEO or CMO (Chief Moving Officer) of OnTheGo®.
Founded in late 2009, a 19-year-old Mick started OnTheGo® out of his bedroom in the family home, with the business quickly expanding to his father’s wood turning shed. Four years later Mick now owns one of Australia’s fastest growing sporting goods export companies.
The idea for OnTheGo® manifested itself when Mick realised that certain customers weren’t being served in the sports market.
Canberra business young gun Mick Spencer sat alongside entrepreneur extraordinaire Sir Richard Branson at a special event this week for The University of Queensland's Business School.

The 22-year-old OnTheGo founder said universities teach people to become employees, not employers, and that undergraduates interning at his company often said they learned more on the job than in the lecture theatre.
"It would be better if there was more real-life experience put into universities," he said.
