Bill Reichert's New Zealand innovation report, part 2: The top ten (and a bit) New Zealand businesses  

By: Bill Reichert // June 23, 2017

Excerpt from the article:

"Garage Technology Ventures' managing director Bill Reichert recently spent four weeks in New Zealand as entrepreneur in residence at AUT University and travelled the country meeting some of our most promising and passionate startups, innovators, educators and regulators. In the second and final part of a feature, he tells us about the New Zealand companies that impressed him most. 

Finally, I’d like to share some of my excitement around many companies I have met that are shining examples of world-class talent and innovation. My personal Top Ten List of New Zealand startups includes: 

• Soul Machines: Emotionally intelligent avatars for personalised online service and support. I had a chance to visit the new office in the Ferry Building and see behind the scenes what Mark Sagar and Greg Cross are doing. Mind boggling."

Close of article:  "These companies and these entrepreneurs are the crown jewels of New Zealand’s future. And they are only the tip of the iceberg. I met several other impressive entrepreneurs, but I couldn’t fit them all into the Top Ten."
