Mike has an extensive background of experience in bringing ideas to reality.
He founded Grad Connection which sold to Seek in 2019. Along the way, he also founded Fishburners a co-working space and participated in Blackbird ventures, investing in companies like Bitwise Agronomy.
Since then he has moved back to NZ with his family and set up the world’s first fossil fuel-free farm. They grow cherries 20 min south of Wanaka. He is the CEO of NZ0 and has just been appointed CEO of Rewiring Aotearoa. Mike’s Orchard is an incubator for all things electrification and horticulture technology. Mike is not hands-on in the Business’s day-to-day however there is a lot of overlap that we leverage to drive Fruitminder forward. His credibility and reach in the Ag sector of New Zealand have been a massive part of driving the company forward and also bringing along Ag connections in Australia and the USA.
