From Startup Sprint to Sustainable Systems: How EY Ripples Helped Critical

From Startup Sprint to Sustainable Systems: How EY Ripples Helped Critical
As a startup we are often sprinting towards our goals at such a rapid pace that we miss putting good systems in place.

Which is why I'm so grateful to my good mate Simon Ngawhika and the EY FSO Climate Change and Sustainability Services (CCaSS) because they have been putting in some incredible pro-bono mahi as part of the EY Ripples program to help Critical. build out our backend sustainability systems while upskilling our team.

There's a bit of history between me and the bro. In the earlier days of Critical. I used to work part time at EY and Simon and I used to work on projects together. I remember often drawing from his incredible kete of knowledge in sustainability, entrepreneurship and Mātauranga Māori to which I now apply in my mahi today.

But the biggest lesson was seeing the way Simon extends manaaki and generosity to those around him in both mahi and in life. And once we learnt that we both gamed...well we, as well as both our whānau quickly became good mates. Chur brother, your a real gift to those around you and I'm not ashamed to about this public display of man love. haha.

Most importantly I want to extend a massive thank you to Tori SullivanPip BestGerri WardTara KingJoanna FriedmanViyola DsouzaAlice Elworthy and the wider EY whānau of volunteers for what you've enabled and for your time. For a startup to experience the generosity of your network of world class talent is unreal.

And it feels like once you're a part of EY, they will never let you go! haha
