Living and Working in New Zealand, the new American Dream
Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. Today, we have a very special guest with us Lauren Peate (pictured above), an American entrepreneur who has been living in New Zealand since 2015.
Lauren is the founder and CEO of Multitudes, a workplace tool that provides managers insights to create happier, better-performing teams by highlighting blind spots and providing them with the correct recommendations on how to improve workplace engagement.
Despite still being in its infancy, the company which started in Dec 2019 has already brought in its first customers last year and has raised AUD$2.2 million in seed capital from Blackbird Ventures with participation from renowned angel investors such as Ellen Pao, the previous CEO of Reddit and Jon Williams, co-founder of Culture Amp.
The company is now slated to launch its beta version and has gone from an all-Kiwi user base to a global one.
So, today we are gonna talk to Lauren about why she decided to start a business in New Zealand instead of her home country of the USA.
Lauren also dishes out tips on the best way to make an elevator pitch and for Americans on how to bag a job in New Zealand.
