Peter Mekkelholt

Peter is a software engineer with over 20 years of experience designing and developing applications. Leveraging technical knowledge and the tenacity required to lead an early stage startup, Peter fulfills the CTO function for new ventures. He aligns their business goals with current technical capabilities, guides the technical design of potential solutions, and ultimately oversees the development of feasible, profitable, scalable products.

He spent 20 years working in Asia before moving to Europe, where he now calls Portugal home. However, as a native New Zealander, he is a mandatory rugby fan, unless the surf is particularly good.
