The Biz Dojo
Ari Sargent, CEO of Powershop (the world's first digital electricity retailer), will be joining us this evening to share the inside story of how Powershop was created and their struggles and victories along the way.
Powershop is world famous in Newtown, known for it's fun and fruity billboards and is NZ's favourite electricity retailer. More recently Powershop has launched in Victoria, Australia as well.
In 2007, Ari founded Powershop, as a fully owned subsidiary of Meridian, after 20 years in the industry. Since then, Powershop has consistently placed first in ConsumerNZ Customer Satisfaction rankings for electricity suppliers, and in 2012 broke previous records for growth in the Deloitte Fast 50.
Ari will be touching on some of the unique design and technology aspects of what propelled Powershop forward from it's birth and why Newtown is so excellent.
We'll be holding this meetup at the fabulous BizDojo.
