A startup business located in Canberra, Australia, StakOne is comprised of a small, diverse and dedicated group of enthusiastic contributors in research, management, web & application development, design and communications.

Mr. Raj Mann, Founder, CEO
Raj holds the position of CEO of the StakOne organisation after founding the company in early 2015.
The idea for StakOne was conceived in 2012 while Raj was at university. Inspired from a passion to innovate, Raj wanted to build products that would empower people to achieve more. The first opportunity came from his experience working at a fast food restaurant in Canberra. Raj was able to identify avoidable pitfalls that turned out to be commonplace in the industry. By continuing to question these practices he began to form StakOne’s first product, StakTask.
First graduating with a Certificate IV in IT Networking at the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) in 2010, Raj continued down this path, completing his Certificate IV in IT Programming in 2011 and finally graduating with a Diploma of Software Development in 2012 from CIT. Raj continued to advance his education graduating with a Bachelor of Software Engineering from the University of Canberra in 2014.
Raj has spent time working as a Web developer, business analyst and as a project manager. It is the combination of his skills, passion, theoretical knowledge and practical experience that has lead to the foundation of StakOne - a company that is driven by practical results and guided by thorough and logical market research.
