Chip discusses how the harnessing of connections through technology can help New Zealand companies bridge the vast distances between us and global markets.
Highlights of being a member of Kea to Chip include:
- Access to Kea's sophisticated business-matching service that can help NZ businesses take their first big steps into new global markets
- Having contacts to reach out to in almost every city in the world
- Being able to meet these people back in New Zealand who have that worldly perspective
Chip also discusses the challenges New Zealand is facing, particularly around a perceived lack of confidence and investment into NZ innovation.
