The Art of Scaling Up - Making the Transition from Start-up to Scale-up - 3 hr Masterclass
The Project - in association with Callaghan Innovation - are thrilled to be hosting Bill Reichert, Managing Director at Garage Technology Ventures. As AUT's inaugural Entrepreneur in Residence, Bill will be in Auckland for two events, a 3hr morning masterclass on Thursday 25 May, and an evening keynote the following week on Thursday 1 June. 

It’s easy to start up a start-up. Thanks to the flourishing of incubators, accelerators, books, courses, videos and blogs, the world has been flooded with wisdom on what it takes to turn your brilliant idea into a start-up company. But it’s really hard to scale-up a company. Once you’ve validated your idea fits a market need, you need new skills, you need a bigger team, you need a different culture. You have to change your mindset. You need to make the transition from being a “start-up” to being a “scale-up.”

Bill Reichert has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur and operating executive. Since co-founding Garage in 1998, Bill has focused on early-stage information technology and materials science companies. He has been a board director or board observer at CaseStack, WhiteHat Security, ClearFuels Technology, Simply Hired, MiaSole, D.light Design, ThermoCeramix, and VisaNow, among others. Prior to Garage, Bill was a co-founder or senior executive in several venture-backed technology startups, including Trademark Software, The Learning Company, and Academic Systems. Earlier in his career, he worked at McKinsey & Company, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., and the World Bank.

Bill earned a B.A. at Harvard College and an M.B.A. from Stanford University. He was a founding board member and a Chairman of the Churchill Club, and a Board Member of the Silicon Valley Association of Startup Entrepreneurs. Currently he is the Chairman of the Small Fund Roundtable of the VC Taskforce and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York
