Nick Jackson
CTO @Pyper Vision & Co-Founder @Spout Alternatives

Nick splits his time between two startups. Pyper Vision is on a mission to eliminate fog disruptions at aerodromes, empowering airlines, airports and ATC alike to maintain their revenue, operate on schedule and in safe conditions every time. Spout sells milk, without the plastic waste, in reusable stainless steel kegs to high-volume milk users - milk on tap. He is an engineering graduate from UC with a BE(Hons) and ME in Chemical and Process Engineering. 

Nick will be talking to us today about New Zealand’s plastic milk bottle problem and Spout’s journey towards fixing it.
