Entrepreneurs Unleashed: Purpose, Culture & Aotearoa
Come along to hear the stories of two founders, Tama Toki and Lillian Grace, how they got started, the challenges they faced along the way, and how to build a purpose, culture-driven company that is deeply Aotearoa.
Ticket includes dinner catered by Catroux and kombucha on tap from our friends at Organic Mechanic.
👉Tama Toki, Founder of Aotea
Tama grew up on Great Barrier Island – Aotea in Māori. During winter his kuia – grandmother – would boil up a pot of Kumarahou or Kawakawa tonic, as a regular part of the whanau diet. Without access to common household medicine, the tonic became their natural rongoa -remedies/medicines. This experience and the desire to create a sustainable business for his whanau provides the inspiration for Aotea.
We look forward to hearing more about Tama’s journey from idea to flourishing business.

👉Lilian Grace, Founder of Figure.nz
Figure.NZ exists to enable everyone to make sense of data and see Aotearoa clearly. The dream behind Figure.nz is that when every New Zealander wants to use data, can get their hands on it, and knows how to use it effectively, the nation will be able to shift away from a culture of binary debate and arguments over what the situations are. Instead, we can debate where we want to head to and how we can get there based on where we are now.
Don’t miss this opportunity to understand from Lillian how to pursue the thing you care about most, with purpose, clarity and a great team.
