Richard Liew talks to Tim Crown, Chair at Blackpearl Group (NZX: BPG) and Chair and Cofounder at NASDAQ listed Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT) about Blackpearl’s recent listing on the NZX, and Insight Enterprises journey from a $USD2000 startup to $USD10B in annual revenues.

Wellington born technology company Blackpearl Group listed on the NZX Main Board under the ticker BPG on Friday 2 December.

There is no capital raise associated with the listing as it was a direct compliance listing.

Blackpearl Group Chairman Tim Crown, co-founder of Nasdaq listed Fortune 500 company, Insight Enterprises, says Blackpearl Group is both a technology company and an investment company with enormous opportunity. “Having invested in creating a unique technology platform that can add value to a range of applications, we have an opportunity to innovate into new digital markets.”

Founder and chief executive, Nick Lissette, says the listing on the NZX is a platform for future growth.

“We’ve been asked why the NZX and why now? The NZX’s low cost and low friction listing platform made going public on the NZX the next logical step for the company. And there’s never been a better time to acquire technology companies.”

In this interview Richard Liew spoke to Chair Tim Crown about Blackpearl Group and some of his hard won insights gleaned from being involved with over 50 startups including his own NASDAQ listed technology company Insight Enterprises Group.
