#100 : This week on Chill, we chat with Robett Hollis @!

In a nutshell, in 2006 Robett launched New Zealand’s Largest Action Sports Media Network which included a collection of community websites, globally recognised smartphone apps, national events and multiple Television Shows with international distribution agreements. He then founded FRONTSIDE, one of the countries leading Content Strategy and video Production Agencies which created content for partners including Heineken, BMW, ASB, Veuve Clicquot and more. In 2018 FRONTSIDE was acquired by Saatchi & Saatchi / Publicis Groupe – The 3rd largest communications Company in the World.

In 2013, to support the startup and tech ecosystem in Aotearoa we launched a commercial real estate company which provided shared workspace facilities called ColabNZ. Over 5 years we expanded ColabNZ into New Zealand’s Largest Network of Co-Working Workspaces with over 15,000sqm in 10 locations. In 2018 ColabNZ was also fully acquired.

As the youngest Board Member of NZ Tech & Figure NZ, Founder of the New Zealand Entrepreneurs Festival and Judge at the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards Robett is extremely driven to take on our Tall Poppy Syndrome and see others succeed.
