It was an incredible night, marking the end of one incredible journey and marking the beginning of a new one. 2degrees, 20% owned by Maori is now on the scene and in it’s first few days has made a significant dent into Aotearoa’s mobile market.
The launch reflected both the values and whakapapa of the company, respecting Ngati Whatua, who opened with a karakia and waiata moving to Tainui kaumatua Jim Nicholls who added additional blessings and song.
Matua Mana Forbes was Master of Ceremonies and paid hommage to those who helped to create what was to become 2degrees. Bill Osborne, then spoke of how the company came into existance and recognised the verocity of Tex Edwards and his passion for seeing this shared vision become a reality.
Here are some addition pics from the evening:
