“This is an evening that is really about celebrating the unique innovation New Zealand brings to the world.”

If you know me, you know New Zealand is my favorite place on Earth. Their unique innovation ecosystem lends itself to some of the coolest products and strongest communities I’ve ever seen. This makes my role as a judge for the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards all the more of an honor each year. 2019 was my fourth year judging the Young Achievers category, and I cannot wait to be back in 2020. If you know a Kiwi entrepreneur, encourage them to apply! It’s not too late.

Here’s the recap of the Hi-Tech Awards gala last year, with a special cameo from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern! Hope to see you at the next!
