Why are you passionate about working with startup founders?
I firmly believe that New Zealand's future success relies on our kiwi founders building successful, innovative and global businesses. When kiwi founders build these businesses, the benefits are experienced by all of us. Building those companies is hard work. Building out into the world is even harder. I'm here to help make it a little easier.
What experience do you have working with startup founders?
I act as trusted legal adviser to some of the most successful start-ups and technology companies in New Zealand.
