NZ’s top technology entrepreneurs ride Segway PTs at MORGO

Segway New Zealand was invited to bring a fleet of Segway Personal Transporters (PTs) to this year’s Morgo, which concludes today at Waitangi, Bay of Islands.

An invitation-only event, Morgo is the annual get together for people actively building high-growth companies into the world. It is attended by New Zealand’s top export-focused technology entrepreneurs, and always features speakers of the highest quality. This year’s opening address was by Rod Drury (Founder and CEO of Xero.com) – who was one of our first Segway PT customers in 2004, and a fearless member of NZ’s Pole Blacks Segway Polo team.

Segway NZ has attended Morgo almost every year since 2007. Search our News archives for many past stories about our experiences with NZ-invented technologies launched or featured at Morgo (for example, the Martin Jet Pack, Yike Bike, and Rex Exoskeleton).
