Old Collegian Rewarded For Entrepreneurial Talent

Congratulations to Old Collegian Nicholas Mitchell (Greenbank, 1994-99) whose company, Rock.ai, was recently accepted by New Zealand’s premier digital accelerator, Lightning Lab into their 2016 programme in Auckland.

Rock.ai, along with nine other companies, made it through an extensive application process to be the 10 teams to receive $20,000 seed funding, intense mentorship and the opportunity to work on the business 24/7 through the four-month long Lightning Lab programme. Nicholas now has the opportunity to receive intensive mentoring from over 100 world class entrepreneurs.

Lightning Lab Auckland ran its first programme last year, helping nine companies to raise approximately $2.6 million.

Lightning Lab is a national programme that runs business accelerators across New Zealand.

Well done Nicholas, and all the best for the year ahead!
