A Kiwi in San Francisco

Entrepreneurs; Rarely photogenic
Hello KLP blog readers!
.
My name’s Reuben and over the coming months, I’ll be writing about my experiences at the Kiwi Landing Pad here in San Francisco, as we gear up for the Catapult program designed to help Kiwi Tech startups get into the US market.
.
It was suggested – this being the first post – that I give the readers a bit of a background on where I came from and how I got to be here…
.
Truth be told, one could find out most of the relevant stuff by taking a look at my LinkedIn profile or doing a quick Google search. (Hint for Googlers: I’m not the Reuben Metcalfe who was born in the 1800′s)
.
For those that don’t have the time/inclination, the short version is that I’m a serial startupper, having worked in and around a variety of startups over the last few years (Mostly in wellington.)
.
More recently, I’ve found myself running a (small) company called I Dream of Space - which, as a direct result of being here at the Kiwi Landing Pad, has been getting a bit of attention…
.
 It’s a story that’s still unfolding as the business scales, but hopefully one worth telling. Meanwhile – I’ll be detailing my experience on this blog and hopefully provide some inside to fellow kiwis as to what life is like on the ground, here in the Home of the Tech Startups.
