The latest in our continuing series of interviews with BizSpark start-ups and Network Partners has been posted on the Microsoft Spark New Zealand website. This time we are talking to Steve Corbett, CEO of the e-Centre in Albany.
A number of New Zealand BizSpark start-ups are located at the e-Centre (or are virtual residents).
Who are the e-Centre? Well in their own words:
“The e-centre is the business development company based at Massey University Albany.
We help technology entrepreneurs acquire the necessary skills to take their business to the next level by providing company development, skills development and incubation programmes and by offering access to extensive networks and expertise, funding and facilities.
We work closely with Massey University academics and students enabling access to subject matter experts and research.
We encourage export by taking technology ventures into India, the Middle East and Asia through our joint venture with a subsidiary of Tata Consulting and also the New Zealand Software Association.”
Microsoft New Zealand is proud to work with Network Partners such as the e-Centre, helping New Zealand software start-ups grow.
