What is startup?

  • high growth
  • not cash-flow positive
  • less defined business model
  • aggressive targets
  • pre-ipo
  • high-risk profile
  • some industries ( airlines ) startup on completely different scale and timeline

How Auckland different

  • in SanFran networking for webapps with diggs etc easier
  • in NZ easier to meet retailers and customers
  • different reports on how easy to get matching funds from development
  • easy to start, hard to scale
  • maybe launch globally rather than NZ first and then expand
  • lot easier with beta customers you talk meet & talk to in person
  • CARE really good source for contacts
