Wellington’s Angel Network Celebrates Win

Wellington’s angel network, AngelHQ joins others in New Zealand’s early stage investment community, congratulating the cloud-computing company Greenbutton on its successful sale to Microsoft.

“Greenbutton was one of the first ventures AngelHQ investors put money into over four years ago,” said Angel HQ Chairman, Bruno Bordignon.

“We are delighted to celebrate this win, not just for our investors but for the Wellington region, as many of these investors recycle into other opportunities.

“In doing so these investors are not only creating more jobs but tangibly supporting the ambition and aspiration all of us should share for Wellington’s entrepreneurs who are creating ‘value-added’ intellectual property and generating export revenue.” Mr Bordignon added.
