Andy Shenk, chief executive of Auckland UniServices, the commercialisation subsidiary of University of Auckland, joins us on Talking Tech Transfer to discuss how the office collaborates with the Māori people and why that matters, what the opportunities and challenges are around big data and AI, and why being a remote country is an asset for space tech.

He also tells us why New Zealand is missing serial entrepreneurs despite a willingness for people to try their hands at startups and why Auckland UniServices not only creates spinouts or handles licences, but also operates its own businesses – including the one that trains covid-19 vaccinators across the country and several Pacific island nations.
