Manaaki Live | Will Barker | Mint Innovation

Today we are joined by the Founder and CEO of Mint Innovation, Will Barker, who shares with us what it is like to be in a bit of ‘hole’ in the wage subsidy scheme. As “inventors of stuff” Mint aims to get through, and has some support from heavy hitters, but in Will’s own words “its going to require all sorts of different mechanisms” As we’ve found on our own Manaaki journey, not all small businesses are the same, particularly in the Tech Sector and Mint Innovation would appreciate a rule change to get them through.
