Backer of ventures - venture investor - private philanthropist

I’ve been involved in a number of sectors - corporate, law, international but am probably best known as having been a lead commercial, public law and cross-border litigator, a senior partner, lead counsel and chair of various law and governance and financial entities. I’ve also backed a large number of innovative ventures, ideas, initiatives across sectors (and am an investor in over 100, 40 or so direct). Currently on the advisory board of Level Two deep-tech innovation hub in Auckland and the principal sponsor of and an advisor to AmbitionNZ. In terms of Philanthropy NZ - I am best slotted into the category of private philanthropist/backer. An adopter of the Giving Pledge concept in the mid 2000’s. Re one area, the arts - I’m a patron/founding governor/fellow/cornerstone partner of several arts entities in NZ and Australia for example - AGNSW , Arts Foundation, FoNZA - Sydney, Te Papa. Details covering all aspects are on my website: Can be contacted re initiatives. (Jan 2019, JS)
