I completed my first Technology Project in the early 1990’s. It was a challenging journey learning how to commercialise and monetise a product from concept through to commercial fruition. It involved technology, raising of capital and learning a number of the pitfalls in taking a new product to the world.
Since then I have raised a significant amount of capital, have overseen several IPOs, a wide array of prospectuses and private capital raising.
I’ve owned an array of private companies, have listed public companies, and have been the CEO and principal shareholder of an NZX listed company.
The journey of commercialising technology has been long and varied. It has taught me it’s not only about an entrepreneur who has a brilliant product or service, but a collaboration made up of complementary partners.
In essence, taking a technology project from concept to fruition takes a wide array of skills and without any doubt a considerable amount of determination and resilience combined with a team who can contribute to governance, financial and regulatory requirements enhanced by excellent communication skills. Then it becomes an imperative to have the right connections who can assist you in finding information and crucially raising capital on the right terms and conditions.

One very unique aspect we may be able to offer, once a technology project has progressed to a reasonable stage of a proven product and transacting business, is a gateway and personal introduction to an array of seriously sophisticated Investor Funds in the United States.
