Why we're based in New Zealand

We knew you'd ask so here are a few reasons:

  • New Zealand is ranked number one on the Corruption Perceptions Index. That means NZ is perceived as one of the least corrupt countries in the world.
  • New Zealand is ranked in the top three countries for ease of doing business and number one for starting a business by The World Bank.
  • New Zealand is ranked number one in the World Giving Index. This is about giving money, giving time and helping a stranger.
  • Kiwi ingenuity is the idea that New Zealanders can solve any problem, often using unconventional means, with whatever happens to be lying around.
