MORGO & the Morgo Community
Jenny Morel, Founder
Way back in 1997, Jenny Morel started a niche investment bank, Morel & Co, to work with tech companies in New Zealand. That was a time that many people didn’t think there were many tech companies there. But within two years, Morel & Co had over 2,000 tech companies in its database!
One year later, Jenny did what she had said she would not do – she started a venture capital fund, No 8 Ventures; New Zealand’s first US-style venture fund. A CEO was appointed to Morel & Co.
In its first year, Morel & Co had 12 clients. They took them away for a weekend together. What amazing conversations! The investment bankers at Morel & Co kept meeting people who should meet each other and so MORGO was born.
