Operation Payne – those remarkable interns who were on my Kiwi Journey

July 27 2010 No Commented

As part of the Bill Payne visit to New Zealand, as the BNZ University of Auckland Entrepreneur in Residence he was greatly supported by two outstanding interns from the University of Auckland – Emma Fitzgerald and Eric Chen Liu who competed with so many to get the chance to spend half a year with one of the world’s leading angel investors and educaters.

This report shows the great value these interns received, while also how much it enabled Bill Payne to be effective and to have fun, focusing on what was important.

This intern programme would not have happened without the New Zealand Government funding support, in particular the Foundation for Research Science and Technology.
