About the Author:

Norman is an entrepreneur/investor who has founded several high-growth technology businesses and assisted around forty high-growth entrepreneurs to start their businesses.
His interest is particularly in the first 3-5 years of company development, after which he typically disengages to work on new businesses.
Of the high-growth companies Norman has started/assisted in the last fifteen years, one has gone to IPO, three have been successfully sold to larger companies, ten have failed, and the rest are at various stages of development ranging from almost big enough to exit to almost dead.

Norman s current passion is for using entrepreneur development and start-up support together as tools for local economic development. He has run three business incubators in Australia and New Zealand and has, in those roles, seen the development of many more start-ups than the forty he has personally worked on.

He has worked as a Research Technician, Street Sweeper, Truck Driver, Linesman, Engineering Designer, Market Researcher, Strategic Planner, Marketer, CEO, and Investor. He has started small businesses, including a gym and a painting contracting business.
He has an MBA from Otago University, and a Doctorate in business from Charles Darwin University. His doctoral dissertation was on the behavior of entrepreneurs in start-ups.

Norman has been a company director since 1996, and currently sits on the Boards of a number of small to mid-size companies (all less than $200M pa revenue).
