Further to my commentary yesterday, reports have emerged from New Zealand this morning that another ambitious technology business, PowerbyProxi, is seeking capital for growth. PowerbyProxi is developing a wireless charging technology which, if it comes off, will mean fewer wires in the office and when travelling. Samsung is an early adopter. PowerbyProxi wants to hire an additional 90 engineers, based in New Zealand, Korea and the USA, to accelerate product development and commercialise the technology.
Whereas others are heading down the IPO path to fund growth, PowerbyProxi may seek a listing or it may use other instruments. Overall, the plan sounds audacious. However, the CEO Greg Cross, has a track record of making things happen.
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and boardcraft; our place in the world; and other topics that catch my attention.
