The Biz Dojo
Glenn Milnes is CEO of ike, a Wellington headquartered tech company with big plans. The ike team is fuelled by coffee and driven by a mission to thrill customers with solutions to their biggest (and smallest) measurement and modelling problems.
ike technology is used across industries that need to measure and model their world - utility companies, energy companies, city councils, emergency responders & public safety groups, insurers, builders, architects and a lot of others.
Glenn joined ike having left the dark side of venture capital - where he had executive and board roles for a number of international businesses.
He will touch on some the challenges ike has faced building a global company from Wellington, the temperature for capital-raising in NZ and the US, a view from the trenches of a recent Kickstarter campaign, the ups and downs in the unfashionable business of developing hardware, and why Wellington is a great place to grow a great team.
We'll be holding this meetup at the fabulous BizDojo.
