Meet Simon Pound — Partner at Previously Unavailable, Co-Founder of Ingrid Starnes, and host of Business is Boring Podcast.

Business is Boring is the podcast that reckons it’s anything but! Previously Partner Simon Pound hosted and produced the weekly interview series for Callaghan Innovation and The Spinoff for five years, over which time he spoke to more than 250 people helping make the NZ business community thrive, from brand new first time start-up founders, to the people running our biggest international successes. 

The goal of the series was to show that there are many diverse, interesting, creative and purposeful ways to be in business, and it was not a grey, dry and boring domain -  with the hope of inspiring more people to be entrepreneurial and be part of growing NZ Inc. Over the run the pod maintained a representative mix of gender, region, background, company type and company stage. Regularly the top NZ made business podcast, it was the top local entrepreneurship podcast on the Apple charts for its run, with a wide and engaged listenership. From the pod many business connections were made, deals won and introductions made. 

At the end of 2021 the five year run concluded, with the pod winning Best Business Podcast at the New Zealand podcast awards. 

The pod will return with a new presenting sponsor and a refreshed format in 2022.
