Event description
Connect: Talks to Inspire- An Entrepreneurial Journey

About this event

Asantha Wijeyeratne’s entrepreneurial journey began as a 22-year-old migrant with 500 US dollars in his pocket; now he is the CEO and major shareholder of a NZX listed company.

Join us for our second Connect session, Pivot! We will hear from Asantha, a 2021 finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year – and how his obsession with customer care over everything else was the pillar of the successful businesses he has helped build. How he went from semi retiring in 2014, to starting a tech company that is now a market leader. And finally, what the last 18 months have taught him about entrepreneurial vision.

In partnership with BNZ and St John’s Bar & Eatery these sessions offer a prime opportunity to escape the cold weather, enjoy connecting with other like-minded professionals and hear from an inspiring speaker.

A little more about Asantha:

CEO / Co-Founder of Paysauce.

Asantha moved to New Zealand in his twenties and built a number of successful businesses prior to founding New Zealand’s largest SME payroll provider, SmartPayroll. He sold that business due to technical limitations which prevented it from responding rapidly to customer needs. He founded PaySauce, now a NZX listed company to bring a fresh approach to payroll software and revolutionise the way SME owners pay staff and manage employment obligations.
