What song sums up the programme to you? Takin’ care of Business by Bachman Turner


Q: What brought you to be a Lab Tech?

The land of New Zealand paired with the excitement an accelerator programme brings.

Q: What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

A lifestyle of hard-work, uncertainty, and the endless pursuit of success.

Q: What are you looking forward to or do you hope to get out of KFA?

Hoping to learn a lot about the FinTech industry as well as a lot about myself.

Q: Share something that inspires you… And tell us why.

The Do what you love (no excuses!) TEDTalk by Gary Vaynerchuk inspired me. Gary argues that there is no excuse for not doing what makes you happy and that has been in the back of my mind since graduating college last June.
