As part of the Wellington incubator network, Positively Wellington Business is proud to endorse the following participants in the Sao Paulo Summit meeting from 15-17 March:

- Adam Brown (Customers.co.nz)
- Richard Brett (FieldPine Development)

“All four are exciting Wellington companies with high growth potential” says PWB CEO Philip Lewin. “It is great to be able to get in behind them, particularly when another Wellington company, Trade Me, has achieved such notable success in recent days”.

“We look forward to seeing all of these companies grow and prosper further as a result of the business contacts they will make in Sao Paulo” Mr Lewin says.
