NEW ZEALAND TECHNOLOGY MILLIONAIRES TO
REVEAL KEYS TO THEIR SUCCESS
Technology success stories Steve Outtrim of Sausage Software and Chris Jones of Telemedia are to be the keynote speakers at New Zealand’s second IT Investment Forum to be held at Sky City Auckland on May 8.
The Forum will focus on the process of establishing a technology business and attracting the capital necessary for expansion into the Australasian market.
Outtrim and Jones will be joined on the podium by leading Australian venture capital and technology figure Roger Allen. The Forum will also feature presentations from four New Zealand technology companies seeking investment in order to expand.
Forum organiser Greg Shanahan of IT Investment Network Ltd., says the speakers will face an audience of New Zealand technology entrepreneurs eager to learn about the process of raising venture capital from Australian investors and the opportunities Australia and other markets offer.
“There has been considerable interest in the Forum from New Zealand technology companies but also from Australian and New Zealand investors who are keen to scout the New Zealand companies looking for investment and find the next Sausage or Telemedia” said Mr Shanahan.
The May 8 Forum builds on the success of the first IT Investment Forum held during the America’s Cup in February which brought together nearly 200 technology and investment companies to network and develop mutually beneficial relationships. Keynote speakers at the first Forum included Bill Koch, Tom Perkins, John Sculley and Jim Clark.
Mr Shanahan said. “The Forum brings together investors and those seeking investment in a marketplace atmosphere where they can interact comfortably and build relationships. This is not just about Australia though, like the first Forum in February the New Zealand investment and venture capital community will be very well represented. ”
