all hail technology

It’s staggering to consider the impact that high-growth tech companies have had on this country’s economy. Remember when Navman was sold to US company Brunswick in 2003 for just over $100 million? It attracted a lot of negative comment at the time, around the loss of profits to overseas investors. But what people forgot back then, but appreciate much more nowadays, is the ongoing impact entrepreneurs and investors (both here and overseas) have on business growth and development over the long term. Profits from big sales like Navman or Sistema Plastics get ploughed back into other local ventures, creating additional jobs. A recent report from Callaghan Innovation, Growing the Pie, revealed that Kiwi entrepreneurs have, since 2003, created at least nine businesses worth more than $1 billion each – companies such as…

ROTORUA BASECAMP ATTRACTS MORE REMOTE WORKERS EMBRACING REGIONAL lifestyle benefits while working remotely for national companies is a rising trend and Rotorua’s Digital Basecamp is at the forefront of that trend. Digital Basecamp business development manager David Remmerswaal says the co-working space was originally launched in 2017 with the local workforce in mind, but the growth in remote workers and ‘digital nomads’ has changed the way the business works. “We now have 50 percent of our members within Digital Basecamp living in Rotorua for the lifestyle, but working for national or international companies in professional roles,” he says. “Having a remote workforce makes sense for corporates – their real estate or lease costs are cheaper, the workforce is diverse across regions of New Zealand, and cloud-based business tools mean employees still work across the…

a beautiful business launch

Both Botany Town Centre in Auckland and Bayfair Shopping Centre in Tauranga clinics far exceeded expectations over their opening weekends and into their opening month. With the appearance medicine industry in New Zealand in the early stages of an upward trend in demand, The Cosmetic Clinic’s new franchisees are excited to be part of an industry that understands the value of becoming the very best version of yourself regardless of gender. Men and women in New Zealand are recognising the value as well, with more everyday Kiwi’s making appearance medicine treatments part of their ‘feel good, look great’ routines. Support is an integral part of this business. New franchise owners are given exceptional support and tried and tested strategies from the management and marketing teams to ensure they have the knowledge, training,…

a ride in the park

Jonny Martin is brimming with enthusiasm – for his business, Paihia Mountain Bikes; for the newly-developed Waitangi Mountain Bike Park in Northland, where his business is based; for mountain biking as an activity; and just for the fact he is running a business. He sees owning his own successful business as truly exciting and admits that “everyone takes the piss” about his enthusiasm. “But I am genuinely stoked – it’s awesome to be in business.” The 25-year-old says he has always wanted to run his own company and from quite a young age had liked the idea of being self-employed. Jonny says there are lots of challenges and rewards and “it does take time to get to the stage where you can make yourself redundant. And time to get the structures and processes in…

force of habit

Tokoroa brothers QJ and Kayne Satchell were so convinced of the efficacy of vaping as a tool for breaking the hold cigarettes had on them, and too many other Kiwis, they set up an e-liquid manufacturing company, NZVAPOR, in regional Auckland. Both had been heavy smokers and quit through early exposure to vaping in 2011. Today they employ a staff of ten in their recently opened facility on the edge of Silverdale, 30 minutes from Auckland’s CBD. The purpose-built facility has an ISO grade 5 ranking, higher than that of a standard hospital theatre, and achieves air particle densities 30,000 times smaller than required. Its shipping bay and storage facilities have room for the expansion they predict. Better still, they have been, and continue to be, self-financing. The brothers also have a “world-first app”,…
