  • Amelia Wong on the present enthusiasm in public markets
  • Sacha Judd on the general lack of understanding on both the investor and entrepreneur sides of the deal
  • Karl van Randow with observations on the value of capital and the tradeoffs of accepting itBrian Sweeney on brand New Zealand and its role in the world
