GrownUps began as an idea to service the rapidly Internet savvy mature demographic in New Zealand, several years ago.
The founders, Richard Poole & Shane Bradley, had an interest in the both the phenomenon of the online world and in providing a free website that allowed both visitors who were new to the Internet and those already familiar with it, to find useful and interesting information in one place, rather than scour all search engines to find local information specific to them.
Working with SeniorNet for initial feedback in early 2006, the site launched in June 2006 and continues to work alongside a number of organisations and of course all visitors, in requesting feedback in order to continue improving the site.
GrownUps now around 100,000 unique visitors per month, viewing over 500,000 pages of information and features. There are now almost 70,000 GrownUps members across the country, with some scattered around the world.
The website is highly ranked in NZ by Nielsen/NetRatings (excluding Blog sites) for Average Page Duration, meaning visitors enjoy spending time reading articles of interest.
GrownUps is an independent site and as such wishes to be open to all views. It is a Free site that is maintained via Advertising and Sponsorship.
