conquering adversity

The common theme throughout this month’s issue is one that every business entrepreneur can relate to I’m sure. I am, of course, referring to the word adversity. Business is a tough gig – no doubt about it – and this is particularly highlighted in many of our feature stories this month. For a start there is our cover story featuring the supreme winner of the 2019 David Awards, and some of the category winners. The winner of the supreme award, Alex Watson of The Little Bone Broth Company in Christchurch, has put in a stellar effort to get his business off its feet, which has paid off with some spectacular growth. Once again the David Awards demonstrated just how much adversity business owners have to contend with in order to realise their dreams. There is…

CHRISTCHURCH START-UP ENDS VOICEMAIL FRUSTRATIONS A START-UP born out of the University of Canterbury has launched software which promises to end frustrating voicemail inbox calls. Vxt is a smart assistant that converts voicemails to text for users to read in the Vxt app, or via an email. They are also developing tools to automate administrative tasks, such as event scheduling. The app, co-founded by 22-year-old students Luke Campbell and Lucy Turner, has just launched on the App Store and Google Play. The idea for the app came to Luke last year after receiving a voicemail. “Someone had sent me a voicemail and I was frustrated with how slow and annoying the process of checking it was. Checking voicemail is a pain in the ass and so I thought: ‘Why not change…

we’re moving into a bigger, bolder, print and digital future

Here at NZBusiness and Management magazines we’re making some big adjustments to ensure we continue to offer our readers and advertisers the quality business journalism, expert advice and future-led thinking they have come to expect and respect over our many years of publication. We love print and we know our readers and advertisers do too. It is carefully curated content and big-picture thinking delivered in a very safe brand environment. But in this day and age, print is an expensive business and rather than go the way of many other publishers and confine ourselves to the digital realm we are determined to continue with the exclusivity and tactile experience that our print publications provide, for both readers and advertisers – along with an enhanced offering of digital options. It is no secret that…

working the 5-rule success strategy

After first meeting as 16 year olds at Wanaka’s Mount Aspiring College, Ash Fogelberg and Nick Frandsen went on to become best mates and, in their early 20s, business partners with their ticketing and payments company 1-Night. Entrepreneurship comes naturally to these two. After dropping out of university to start 1-Night they quickly built the company up, always with a view to a managed exit and acknowledging the fact that it would be a learning experience. ‘High growth, high potential’’ soon became Ash and Nick’s mantra for business success, but as Ash points out, the key was to ensure that any business venture they got involved in was stable over the long-term. That’s precisely the road they’ve gone down with their latest venture Dovetail – a self-financed tech agency and services business which…

vivendo il sogno: living the dream

It’s a classic story of business romance. Travel to the other side of the world; fall in love with a city; set up a business creating true artisan gelato; and proceed to make the local, and wider, population swoon with delight. That’s the story of Yuri Aristarco and Daniela Burlando and their Nelson-based Gelato Roma business. The couple believed Europe would not offer the lifestyle they were looking for – such as spending more time with their two children, working fairer hours, with less pressure and easy daily access to fulfilling experiences in the great outdoors, and so on. After coming to New Zealand in 2009 for a holiday and back again in 2010 to trial the country for six months, they found the ideal destination in Nelson. “It ticked all the boxes,” recalls…
