About this event

Celebrating the lead up to #GlobalEntrepreneurshipWeek, Startup Grind Auckland is back and has the privilege of hosting Chris Caigou! Chris is Co-founder and Chief Customer Officer of First AML.

First AML was formed following the ramp-up of anti-money laundering laws in New Zealand, which have expanded to include real estate agents, lawyers, and accountants - creating a big opportunity for First AML. 

Chris and his team (Bion and Milan) have seen incredible growth in the first couple of years and have recently closed a round of $8 million dollars in funding to help them capitalise on new markets and expand overseas.

During this fireside chat, we will explore Chris's journey from corporate banking into the startup world to where he is now, and where he and the team hope to take First AML in the future.

P.s This is a postponed event due to the recent CBD Covid announcement, if you previously had a ticket to this event, it is still valid so no need to purchase a ticket again. Sorry for any inconvenience.
