The guys at Start-Up magazine have been making a TV series following the fortunes of 20 or so start-up companies over the last six months. In their words:

“They've been put through the wringer for the last 6 months, had their business and personal lives placed under extreme scrutiny and been thrown way outside their comfort zone all in an effort to create a World class online company.”

Microsoft NZ was proud to support the TV Finale held last week at the Hilton in Auckland. It was a great event, wonderful to see and hear from a variety of talented New Zealand business people with drive, ambition and energy really making a difference.

As this was the big finale it was down to two final contestants pitching to the assembled audience and judging panel…two great business ideas from two companies. Pretty exciting really, complete with a “the envelope please” moment (okay, there was no actual envelope) as the series winner was announced.

I can’t tell you who won but I think this particular entrepreneur would have upstaged the Slumdog Millionaire cast on oscar night in their obvious delight!

To Patrick and the team – great effort. I’m looking forward to seeing the entire series.
