Moxie podcast 9 (on the startup ecosystem) out now

This is the podcast from the ninth Moxie session, held 30 September 2013 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The topic is:

How healthy is the ecosystem for domestic tech-related firms, how does the pipeline look, and how mature is the sector by comparison with earlier times or with other countries? Where should we focus our efforts to improve things? Is it just a question of increasing volumes, or are there still important bits missing from our ICT system, and if so, who can fill the gaps?


  • Andy Hamilton on the substantial challenges that still face tech firms internationalising from New Zealand
  • Lance Wiggs on seeing only part of the picture, and on the value of founder-friendly, smart money
  • Miles Valentine, with observations from years of founding and investing

Interview by Glenn Williams.
