Kiwis in Business is a weekly podcast series featuring interviews with New Zealand business owners, brought to you by media professional and business owner, Linda Shackelford, and her guest hosts. Kiwis in business puts the spotlight on the stories and personalities of our Kiwi leaders – listen in as they share inspiring and sometimes quirky stories, their goals, learnings and challenges, and you gain insight into the innovation happening in businesses and communities around us.
This week host Linda chats with Ankita Dhakar from SecurityLit.
Ankita moved to New Zealand from India in 2015 to study business and a few years later saw a gap in the market to create a company that provided affordable cybersecurity services for SMEs. So she launched SecurityLit in 2020, and since then has built a team of nine, with a growing pool of local and international clients. She’s here to talk to us about her personal journey towards becoming a business owner and shares with us her qualities which have led her to become recognised as an ICT entrepreneur.
