Wellington’s innovative, mobile app agency, PaperKite, was named a finalist in the city’s Gold Awards under the category, Emerging Gold – Services.

Joining a high calibre list of nominees for the category, Founder and CEO, Nic Gibbens is delighted to be taking part in the awards programme for the first time.

Held each year since 1999, the Wellington Gold Awards celebrates excellence in business and highlights the vital contribution made by organisations in the Wellington Region.

“There were a few different categories we could have fit into quite happily” says Gibbens “but in the end, we felt the work we do, the people we work with and our team culture resonated with Emerging Gold – Services.

PaperKite has just turned five years old, we’ve revolutionised our business model, we’re getting involved with some extraordinary projects and felt that “emerging” sums us up so well”

The PaperKite team will find out at the event on July 9th whether they’ll take away the title of Emerging Gold – Services or the overall Supreme Winner award. Tickets on sale here.
