If you’re part of a NZ Technology company who has endeavoured to take on the US market, chances are you would have had the pleasure of meeting Sian Simpson.
Sian heads up community at the Kiwi Landing Pad (KLP), an organisation established by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs to help companies learn, launch and land by connecting them with networks, information and access.
We’re excited to have Sian join us for a Q&A session to hear how she’s built a community of over 5000 in under 3 years with no budget, a team of 1.5 and all within the tightly competitive US-market.
Spaces are limited so we highly recommend that you get in quickly!
A bit of a dynamo, and described as New Zealand’s startup and innovation ambassador to the world, she’s grown the New Zealand startup community at the Kiwi Landing Pad, in San Francisco, from 200 to 5,000 in the last 4 years making it the bridge between New Zealand and the USA (and increasingly the Commonwealth) for the innovative Kiwi technologists who dream of exporting their businesses overseas. She’s also started programs such as the Sales & Marketing Jams, and KLP’s leading webinar series which focuses on growing the capability of Kiwi entrepreneurs and talent. Both have had thousands of attendees and viewers, and bring experts to the forefront in there domain, as well as featuring a diverse range of speakers and stories which Sian actively champions.
Sian was named the New Zealand Global Women of Influence in 2017, and won back to back AIMES awards for Technology & Innovation in 2015/2016.
