Age: Both are 20-years-old.

What do you do if your founding team is decimated by the undeniable lure of working for tech giants Google, Apple and Facebook?


If you’re Carpenter and Callum Chapman, you press on regardless and strike a deal with a major US player to set your product up for global expansion.


In June, the Sydney duo struck a partnership deal with Mokriya, a Silicon Valley-based firm, to handle the development of Cappture. This followed the departure of two of their co-founders shortly after beginning work on the start-up in February.


Cappture is an app that allows users to take multiple photographs, with each picture accompanied with a caption that will summarise their day. The app will have a calendar-style view and will be integrated into social media.


Despite their age, both Chapman and Carpenter have significant experience in working on start-ups.


Chapman, a designer, has worked on multiple brands in the UK and Australia, while Carpenter launched ZOR Technology as a 16-year-old, before the online tech retail business was scrapped following an unfortunate legal wrangle.


“We’re not in this to make a quick buck,” says Carpenter. “Cappture will be free to use and will remain so throughout its life. We would love to see people using Cappture all over the world on a daily basis.”
