On Wednesday we were lucky enough to attend the Auckland presentation of "Anatomy of a Successful Exit: The GreenButton Story", along with a room packed full of technology and startup enthusiasts.
For anyone who doesn't know, in May last year kiwi company GreenButton, founded by Scott Houston, jumped into the headlines after being acquired by technology giant Microsoft. This has added to our country's growing list of successful tech exists.
Dan has been presenting details from his two research papers - "Anatomy of a Successful Exit: The GreenButton story", and "Reflections of a Successful Exit: A Post-Post-Mortem of the GreenButton Story", in a series of roadshows around New Zealand, and we were very pleased to be able to attend the Auckland event.

The room sat captivated while Dan, over a course of around two hours, recapped GreenButton's fascinating story and the challenges the team faced before reaching the exit. He also expertly included top tips along the way for tech entrepreneurs looking to follow GreenButton's footsteps.
The fantastic news is that both papers are available to read by anyone.
We highly recommend checking them out:
