Event description
Join our next FoundX meetup where the spotlight is on Founder Wellbeing joined by guest speakers Debra Hall, Rob Partridge and Jonny Mirkin.

About this event

It's no secret that the past two years have been a challenging time for all, let alone for Founders who have had to take on even more responsibilities and adapt to greater runway-pressure as the world changed before them. Now, more than ever, founder wellbeing is a significant issue in the StartUp space for our founders, investors and all other stakeholders. 

Join us for a fireside chat hosted by Scott Mason of Findex with special guest speakers Debra Hall, Rob Partridge and Jonny Mirkin, as they provide their diverse perspectives on the importance of positively managing mental wellbeing, responding to environmental challenges, managing work/life balance, and much more. 

What's in store?

  • Fireside chat and audience Q&A - Founder Wellbeing
  • 2-3 startup pitches
  • Startup demo hall

Debra Hall - Independent Director, Mentor & Angel Investor 

After building, and selling, her successful business, Debra has spent the past decade supporting entrepreneurial founders to grow great businesses from New Zealand. She invests in early stage companies, mentors founders, and occasionally joins their boards as an early stage director. Debra has mentored dozens of startup founders, and believes that a good mentor is essential to ensuring that the hard business of growing a startup isn't made harder by trying to do it alone.  

Rob Partridge - CEO and Co-Founder of Scannable 

Rob returned home to Dunedin after 15+ years in the UK due to the pandemic, and alongside his Queenstown based co-founder, is building Scannable - a safety data platform, connecting the vertical world of height safety. Scannable’s mission is to make managing safety equipment as easy as Instagram, driving the adoption of digital systems and delivering data and insights that improve safety decision making. 

Jonny Mirkin - Director of Mirkin Ventures

Jonny is a commercial lawyer-turned serial-entrepreneur. From launching a Dunedin based technology business in 2006, to being a founder and CEO of Nomos from 2011 to 2020. Jonny has since launched Mirkin Ventures, supporting other start ups as a consultant and advisor along with a number of professional Directorships. More recently, Jonny has closed a seed round for his third start-up, Alimental, a sustainable food company.
