Hello, I’m Alliv. This blog is where I will share my thoughts and notes on growing an edtech startup, places I want to take you, people you should meet, and things that you will also adore.

I’m a co-founder and COO of tech start-up Kami and previously managed and owned online magazine NZ Style Collective (2010-2013) which became XYNZ Magazine (2013-2018).
