“People who want to start a start-up should really go and work for one first,” says Lance Hodges.

Mr Hodges and partner Kirsti Grant, who together form Populate, have certainly followed their first rule……

….Now the couple have created Populate, a software-as-a-service product designed to help tech startups and fast-growing tech companies in general manage the hiring process, and keep tabs on elements like staff numbers, demographics and salaries through a single dashboard view.

They were helped out by a new “shoulder tap” programme run by The Kiwi Landing Pad in San Francisco, and bankrolled to the tune of $50,000 by BNZ (three other startups: Weirdly, PageProof and Cloud Cannon shared the funding).
