Calling all small businesses with BIG ambitions


Calling all small businesses with BIG ambitions!

JUCY and Origin IT have joined forces to hunt for the next kiwi success story.

They are looking for entrepreneurially driven businesses with between 20 and 50 staff, who have the vision and determination to take on the world.

On offer for the lucky business or businesses with the X-factor is:

1. Lunch with Chief JUCY-fier Tim Alpe, recent recipient of the Blake Leadership award for 2014, to discuss growing a small business quickly,
2. An IT business strategy session with Origin’s Kerry Hull, former GM of IT at the Warehouse, worth up to $3000,
3. An IT support and strategy package, worth up to 10k.
Tim Alpe is the epitome of the New Zealand entrepreneur. Since starting JUCY Rentals with his brother Dan in 2002, Tim has grown the company from 35 vehicles in New Zealand to over 2,800 vehicles in New Zealand, Australia, the US, the UK and Germany.
Alpe is the first to admit that the IT services, support and strategy from Origin were an essential factor to this business growth. In Origin JUCY finds a likeminded, entrepreneurially ran business with people and a culture that understand and match JUCY’s. Both businesses recognize and appreciate each other’s drive to dominate their respective industries.

Both companies are passionate about growing New Zealand businesses, so it made perfect sense for them to team up and find the next kiwi success story to help on their way.
