Garage Technology Ventures’ managing director Bill Reichert recently spent four weeks in New Zealand as entrepreneur in residents at AUT. He travelled around the country, met with startups and produced an Innovation Report on what he found.
Reichert is a renowned member of the technology community in Silicon Valley. As an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, mentor, speaker and advisor, he has been in the industry for decades and understands innovation and what it takes to build a successful tech venture.
He found New Zealand a surprising home of innovation with some clever, talented minds at the helm of some exciting businesses. While there is room for improvement within the innovation space, there were 10 businesses that really impressed him with their products and execution.
One of these is Ubiquitome. Featured in his report here, he says his jaw dropped when he heard the Ubiquitome story of developing “what may be the platform that enables genetic analysis to become a ubiquitous standard diagnostic device.”
Ubiquitome are proud to be included in a list of such prestigious New Zealand companies such as Xero, RocketLab and Soul Machines.
