We were stoked to have a full house at the inaugural Meet the VCs event at the Generator as part of TechWeek19.

It was standing room only for the 100 attendees curated from 60+ companies, as they listened to insights from Australian investors Blackbird Ventures, Shearwater Growth Equity and Partners for Growth, Singapore VC QualGro, and Silicon Valley investor Quidnet Ventures.

New Zealand’s SaaS scene was praised by the panel as a stand out sector. The VC’s also liked the ambition of Kiwi companies to be ‘global from day one’ – it was great to hear this played back from our visitors. The panel also urged the crowd to consider the VC relationship as more multi-faceted than just a pay check and to also consider carefully the advisors and introductions that each place could offer as a partnership.

After some a robust Q&A the VCs were let loose to network with founders over drinks and food. A number of the companies managed to exchange cards with all five investors.

We enjoy creating opportunities like this for NZ tech companies. A big thanks to our partners Balgarnie van Rooyen and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) in putting this event together.
