The Equity Investor Journey Podcast: David Kirk, Changing the World Through Technology

Via australianshareholders.com.au


When we think of shares we generally think of single companies that are listed on the stock market. This is not always the case. Some shares allow you to access investments that are generally beyond the scope of individual investors. Such is the case with Bailador – ASX:BTI, a specialist investor in growth stage information technology businesses.

David Kirk is the former Chief Executive of ASX-listed Fairfax Media Ltd., where he led the successful investment into a number of internet businesses including Fairfax’s acquisition of Trade Me and Stayz. He has been a growth stage investor in technology-based businesses since 1999. He's Chairman of ASX-listed Trade Me Group Limited and Kathmandu Holdings Limited, Chairman of Forsyth Barr Limited, a privately-owned New Zealand investment firm, and a Director of each of DocsCorp, SMI, Viostream and Rezdy.

Prior to entering the corporate world, David enjoyed a highly successful rugby career, captaining the All Blacks to win the World Cup in 1987.
