Austin Rabine started SITE as a pavement assessment service that utilizes modern technology to give their customers in-depth analysis and reporting on their properties. Austin set out to create a product that was an easy way to show businesses a portfolio of their property maintenance items so they can make quick and informed decisions.

 

Austin is the son of our host Gary Rabine, who adds color to the early days of Austin’s entrepreneurial spirit.

In Austin's own words about SITE: “One of our clients had a 3 million square foot distribution center and wanted to zoom in and find a penny on the ground that he knew was there, and he did.”
