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 their 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.
A common mistake that people make is trying to replicate the San Francisco/Silicon Valley model but what everyone forgets it’s been a 50 year journey over there so far. We are desperately trying to recreate in 5 years what took half a century, which is crazy. The fastest way to grow an entrepreneurial ecosystem is to do it slowly. To have the successes like the Xeros, Vends, and Orions who grow something substantial and then spin-off lots of highly skilled people who have been on the journey and want to do it themselves. Essentially Xero and Vend are both offshoots of TradeMe.
