Our Story

Founded in 2019, Safely is an app designed to help women feel safe and be safe by harnessing the power of people.

No matter how secure a home or workplace is, the moment a woman walks out the door, her safety is left there too. With 2 in 3 women reporting that they feel unsafe outside of their homes and 1 in 3 set to experience physical and / or sexual violence in their lifetime, this issue desperately needed to be addressed.

After spending two decades securing thousands of homes and workplaces in one business and streamlining corporate travel bookings with technology in another, Safely co-founders, Justin Nesvanulica and Ross Fastuca, decided to put their heads together to tackle an issue their existing businesses couldn’t resolve:

After a year of research and design and another 8 months of development and testing, Safely is now available to download on both Apple and Android.

As a business, Safely is committed to making a big shift in society; one where individuals stand behind each other, feel empowered to speak up and work towards changing these horrific public safety statistics for good.

We can't do it alone. Gender based violence is deep-rooted and it's going to take advocacy, education, shifts in attitudes and behaviours, challenging stereotypes and so much more to resolve this global issue. Join us in creating a #saferworld where we can all one day #livefreely.

Meet the Founders

Justin Nesvanulica

Co-FOUNDER


Co-founded Signal Security, a national residential and commercial provider, in 2000. With 20 years of experience in the electronic security industry,

Justin has specialised knowledge in risk mitigation, system installation, preventative maintenance and monitoring of security solutions. 

Justin has taken particular interest in helping protect individuals and families affected by domestic violence.

“I feel that society has evolved yet the security industry has still remained heavily focused on securing property.

Effectively what this means is we as an industry are failing to protect, our most valuable asset the moment we step foot out the door… which is ourselves!”

Ross Fastuca

co-founder


Co-founded travel technology company Locomote.com, in 2012. By 2016, Locomote.com grew to an international company and was successfully 100% acquired by Travelport.com (NYSE: TVPT).

Early 2020 Ross bought Locomote.com back from Travelport and Safely will become an integrated app within Locomote.

Ross has numerous accolades including: SmartCompany Innovation Award, Multiple Stevie Gold Trophies, ACTE 3 Under 33, Hot 30 Under 30, Tech23 Award and is a judge for the international Stevie Awards.

“Our greatest desire is to make the need for this app redundant. We wish this world allowed this. We want the world to know that Safely is here. You better start thinking twice before doing something stupid.”
