San Francisco Community Welcomes Kiwi Entrepreneurs


Great night last night here in San Francisco celebrating the launch of Project Catapult.  An initiative  to help Kiwi entrepreneurs open doors into the San Francisco market.

Launch attendees, many of whom are accomplished Kiwi and US entrepreneurs were given details of the Project and heard from the latest participant, David White from Hamilton who pitched his startup IndieReign.

Landing Pad Managing Director John Holt also formally welcomed Catherine Robinson to her new role as the San Francisco Director. Robinson has extensive startup experience and co founded Wellington based startup Aptimize which was acquired by San Francisco based Riverbed Technologies in 2012.

“We are very excited to have Catherine on the team and to have new Landing Pad residents and visitors welcomed by someone who understands the journey of building a global business from New Zealand successfully.”

“Project Catapult is just another example of how we can maximize the benefits of Kiwi Landing Pad and help established companies grow faster in market while also exposing earlier stage entrepreneurs to the realities and requirements of going global through Project Catapult says Holt.”
