DOUG HASTIE on being a serial entrepreneur

NBR Radio has teamed up with Spotify to bring Sunday Business to its podcast platform. You can also listen to the full episode free on SoundCloud here.

This week's featured guest on NBR Sunday Business with Andrew Patterson is Doug Hastie, the chief executive of Syft Technologies, the Christchurch maker of high-tech instruments to ‘sniff’ air quality.

Mr Hastie is also the founder of Chanui. 

They discuss his career as an engineer, investment banker, chief executive and purveyor of fine teas and biscuits. 

Earlier this week saw the Christchurch entrepreneur announce a $7.5 million raise for Syft at an $80 million valuation, and sound-off on Labour's plan to reintroduce a tax-break for R&D.
