What a fantastic conference to showcase our Kiwi solution for fully automated expenses and bookkeeping to a savvy, global crowd of techies, financial service companies and VC investors.

Our pop up shop was run off our feet – often 3 deep with requests from 12 difference VC companies from throughout Asia, Germany, Russian (and a quiet kiwi) for our slide deck.

A special invitation to China to attend an exclusive annual event for just 15 of the world’s new Innovators, hosted by CKGSB, a private business school responsible for producing the CEO’s of some pretty top Chinese companies, including Alibaba.

The opportunity to pitch to HSBC, whom we are now in negotiations with, and the team from KPMG, one of the sponsors of this event, produced their Global Chairman from Canada where a copy of our slide deck is now winging it’s way.

We managed an interview with Uptin from CNBC Asia Pacific too.


What did this do for our company?  Gave us a huge boost not just in financial terms but the ability to measure our solution – and really understand the value proposition, on a global scale, of what we are able to deliver all the way from NZ.

Big shout out to our amazing team at RIP Global, keeping the plates spinning while I was away!
