2014, founder and designers
I founded Cogo with two friends from University. We managed to apply and gain entrance to a New Zealand accelerator program called Lighting Lab.
It was a huge learning experience from business decisions, learning how to project manage and everything in between.
Cogo was a knowledge management platform aimed towards SME’s that helped get new employees up to speed in their new position faster than the average 6-9 weeks. We did this by connecting them to the people, information and other resources they may need in their new positions.
While the company did not progress ahead past Lightning Lab we all progressed into jobs that we wanted and had learned more fully about (Slack, Wipster and Resn design).
Would 100% go through the process of starting a company again once I have completed a few more years in the battle lines and gain further experience and knowledge.
