Sian Simpson, the Director of Content and Community at Kiwi landing pad joins RadioLIVE’s Vaughn Davis to discuss what the company does, and how they do it.

Kiwi Landing Pad is designed to support entrepreneurs and businesses through the journey of having an idea to building a global business.

Ms Simpson describes how “the entire mission of the kiwi landing pad is to help high growth NZ technology companies expand off shore.

The organisation provides access to companies, and helps them to “connect the dots” and help them grow.

They can hit the ground running

The company started in 2010 and are the third co-working space in San Francisco.

A co working space is a place where individuals can go and work, and pay for a hot desk opposed to hiring a full time work space.

Ms Simpson describes how the advantage of a co working space is that kiwis that travel off shore have a place to work without the hassle of visas etc.
