A Conversation with Vaughan Rowsell – CEO & Founder of Vend


The Kiwi Landing Pad is a platform for New Zealand technology companies to Land and Expand into the US market. It’s a way to hit the ground running from day one, literally jump off the plane, grab a desk and some wifi and get to work doing what you do best – growing your business. In our 4th year of running, we thought we’d get some of our successful and up and coming entrepreneurs to share there journeys and talk about the value of having access to a place like the Kiwi Landing Pad. Our community is all about knowledge sharing and giving back.

In essence Vend is a retail platform with all the things that bricks and mortar retailers need to run a modern business. When Vend started out, point of sale was one of those categories that hadn’t really been innovated yet. So they saw an opportunity to rebuild point of sale onto a cloud-based platform which gives a lot of advantages to small businesses. Giving them the equivalent of the super powerful tools and tech that the big guys have been using for years.
