Day 3 - 3rd Day Visiting Companies
Written by Saia Tukuafu
Posted Mon, 19 Mar: Today was the most busiest day of all the days weโ€™ve been present here in California. ๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ’ค We had to visit 4 companies all in one day ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ But the good thing was that they were all in the same area, or surprisingly close ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ We visited the specific companies in this order, XERO, TWITTER, KIWI LANDING PAD and finally YELP.

Xero was an interesting company to see, basically because it resembles some of the values that we hold dear to ourselves as New Zealanders. This also related to Kiwi Landing Pads offices, because they both resembled something back in New Zealand. The things that I liked about Xero was, that one of the speakerโ€™s specifically related to my life in a way. We were soo much alike, and unbelievably her answered my question without a doubt and with no pauses either. ๐Ÿ˜โœ‹ I liked the fact that both Companies were run and originated by Kiwiโ€™s itself. Whereas Twitter & Yelp barely had Kiwi men / women working for them. Well ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜Œ Yelp, had 3 Kiwi men working for them so that basically gave us visitors hope. This was because, they took grasp of every opportunity, and this was exactly what the person at Xero stated, to Grasp onto your dreams, and basically compete for it.

So yeah this day was really exhausting๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ’ค But it was very productive. I loved basically every second of it.
