Wellington business is alive and kicking

June 10, 2013

Well, of course John Key was being simplistic when he commented a few weeks ago that “Wellington was dying and we don’t know what to do about it”.

While the Wellington economy has its challenges, the article in the Dom Post today points out that there are an increasing number of very successful Wellington-based companies, particularly in the accounting, business administration and IT sectors. The article mentions several, including :

Xero, providers of on-line accounting software

Jig lab, providers of film quality 3D computation and digital fabrication

Silverstripe, an open source provider of website development software, providing apps for iphones such as Metlink, and powering up President Obama’s sucessful social media campaign.

In these pages, I’d like to feature some more about some successful Wellington companies, particularly those based in the Eastern suburbs. So… watch this space… and if you know of people who are doing interesting stuff… or just doing ordinary stuff really well… let me know!!!
