A step-up for young start-ups

From Nine To Noon, 9:41 am on 13 June 2017

Facebook, Tumblr, and Snapchat... All big names in the tech industry, and all founded by millenials. Now a group of New Zealanders has raised half-a-million dollars to be invested in start-ups founded by those only under the age of 30. First Cut Ventures was set up in 2015, and is made up of a group of recent university graduates, current students and young entrepreneurs across the country. It was established to bridge the gap between young business founders and the investment community, and to make it easier for millenials to access capital in New Zealand. Kathryn Ryan speaks with Alexander Morreau - a second-year student at the University of Auckland, and partner at First Cut Ventures.
