FOR PEOPLE BUILDING HIGH GROWTH COMPANIES INTO THE WORLD

Morgo is where the people building exciting high growth companies from New Zealand (and Australia) come together to share their stories, learn from each other and get re-excited about being in business.  It’s your annual re-charge, a mini sabbatical to get you re-excited about being in business.  Morgo is open to all the senior people from these companies: not only CEO’s but also CTOs, CFO’s, CMO’s COO’s, and very active board members. It’s an opportunity to re-connect with old friends and make new ones.

We have collected amazing stories from Morgo. Read about them here or watch the videos. We’ve also produced two Morgo books.

“It’s too hard to do this stuff by yourself .. a great place to learn off other people .. and make great contacts" Grant Ryan, Hunch Cruncher & YikeBike “Everyone I sat down next to was someone I wanted to talk to” Greg Cross, Cross Ventures "I‘ve been to 5 Morgo’s - it’s a fantastic event and different from any other event out there" Michael Whitehead, CEO, Wherescape "Being an entrepreneur is lonely.. it’s for companies that already have staff, revenues and experience pushing offshore ..those people can really get benefits from experiences and lessons from others." Sam Morgan, Jasmine Social Investments “The best business conference I have been to. Amazing group of people, open conversations and genuine desire to share experiences, hope I can come again” Jonathan Sackier (USA) “Congratulations! I go to conferences all around the world and this really is a fantastic conference” Jeff Gordon, CEO, OpenCloud (UK) “Jenny – Morgo continues to be a credit to you. It really is THE conference in NZ” Bill Day, Seaworks “Best Morgo I’ve been to. Fascinating speaker topics even the one on nanotech which I only understand 4 words of” Mike Hutcheson – Image Group “It’s the coolest network of smart people.” John Saywell, RPM Retail
