Presenters ... 


The single biggest factor in the success of an early stage business, is the team. Yet we see less due due diligence on the team than the finances, the size of market, the product, or the distribution strategy - sometimes combined!
This session provides tips and hints on how to know what characteristics to look for and to determine if they are present. More than just a 'yes/no' for investment, the due diligence on the team helps identify what the team needs to improve chances of success after investment.

Ngaio Merrick has run Sir David Levene's investment portfolio of early stage companies for the past 8.5 years and is passionate about supporting founders.




Jason and Peter of Movac will take us through their due diligence process and how due diligence for SaaS vs Deep-tech differs. They will each present a case study on a deep tech investment, some areas to focus on and how to conduct due diligence within a portfolio approach to investment.

Movac is an experienced technology investor and is deeply integrated into the Kiwi tech sector. They have been actively investing since 1998 and have just raised their fifth fund
