Kiwi Founder selected to present Springboard Enterprises USA at Dell Global Women’s Summit

Our Founder & CEO has been nominated by Springboard USA to represent them at the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) summit in Singapore July 2019.

Springboard Enterprises is a trusted network of entrepreneurs, investors and advisors accelerating the success of accomplished, entrepreneurial women leaders leading technology driven companies.

They identify and grow Women Entrepreneurs at the top of the pyramid transforming industries.

“This is truly an amazing opportunity for our NZ based company to form relationships and networks around the world.  I am thrilled at the nomination, and really look forward to meeting some outstanding achievers.”

“We all know the stats around executive and board positions, and fundraising by female lead businesses is woeful in comparison to our male peers – even though the returns from female foundered companies are significantly better.  These events shine a light on the numbers and pull together women around the world that are in a position to shift the needle.”

SelectUSA Investment Summit

CEO & Founder Mel Gollan will be joining the US Ambassador to New Zealand at the SelectUSA Summit in Washington DC this June.

Mel will be working with RIP Global Head of Country USA Mindy Augustine and has been invited to present RIP’s automation solution to several states and potential payment partners.

“RIP Global has extensive IP granted in the US market and after significant interest from product trials in New Zealand, we have been pulled pretty quickly into this market. 

‘We are looking for a payment partner and the opportunities available to us from several different States in the USA.  The product will save the New Zealand Government over $200m per year and eliminate fraud, the numbers are massive applied to the USA. 

‘No Government wants to waste tax payers money and fraud is not acceptable. We have a product that will make an impact and we’re excited to get our US friends on board.”.

Startup Weekend Tairawhiti

CEO & Founder Mel Gollan and CTO Jesse Whitham headed to Turanganui-a-kiwa (Gisborne) to support Startup Weekend Tairawhiti.

Gisborne is home for Mel and where RIP Global was designed, so the city has a special place in Mel’s heart.

“This community deserves the very best we can deliver, and I think it is safe to say all of the mentors, volunteers and members of the community that get behind this initiative really understand this.  It warms my soul to see mentors from out of town say this is a startup weekend with massive mana and spirituality – no surprise to me, and there was a bit of sand in the eyes of a few mentors at then end of the weekend”.

Gisborne is classed as a “high deprivation” zone with shocking stats in mental health, suicide and physical health.

“A number of the ideas pitched were how to help this community with what most areas expect to see as basic rights and services.  Distance from service providers, limited employment and low pay has a huge impact on this community.  The people here have the magic, they have the answers, and they just need a little help in the right areas.”

“We are now working with local community leaders to facilitate the frameworks and templates needed to make a difference in this community. If not us, then who?”

The breath of topics, and the depth of the commitment shown by these quiet achievers was inspiring to see. Congratulations to all the nominees, the winners and their whanau (family) for leading the scientific endeavours of our country.

What’s the New Zealand Business Number?

It’s a cool new way to uniquely identify your business. It’s a shout out and a thumbs up from the folks in government to say, hey, we know your pain and we’ve done something about it. Now you can update your details in just one place.

Do it once, do it right, so you can get back to business.

Ka pai NZBN.
