Your Chance to Meet the Serial Killers and Explore the Parallel Universe

Because they’re coming to Wellington later this month, so you can meet them and explore it with them.

And maybe you should, especially if you’re someone involved in IT, like a CIO, a CTO or a software engineer.

Something’s happened in the chip world. A change so fundamental it’s created opportunities to do everything faster, better and cheaper – across the board.

Serial computing is dead. It’s just that most people don’t know it yet. But it is. Intel knows that. So does Google. And ARM, the UK company whose processors drive 90% of the world’s smartphones. Weta Digital’s in the new loop, along with the scientists pitching to have the massive Square Kilometre Array (SKA) located in Australasia.

For all of them, serial computing is and old technology, killed by parallel processing. Parallel processing (PP) relies on newgen chips, not with a single core but with many, even thousands of them. For most people, though, the technology’s less important than the possibilities. Which are immense, according to PP’s champions. Many of whom are coming to Wellington this month for Multicore World 2012, New Zealand’s first heads-up on this IT revolution.

Speakers at Multicore World (March 27-28) include Intel Software Director, James Reinders and Dr Tim Mattson from Intel Labs; John Goodacre, Director, ARM Processor DivisionWeta Digital’s CTO, Sebastian Sylwan; Dr Mark Moir from Oracle LabsMicrosoft’s Artur Laksberg as well as the CSIRO’s Dr Tim Cornwell and speakers from the Universities of Melbourne and Otago.

RIP single core CPU?

Yes, and we should be grateful for that. And, whether you’re a convert or a sceptic, this is a great opportunity to meet the serial killers and explore the parallel universe.

Multicore World 2012 has been put together by New Zealand company, Open Parallel and there’s info and registration details on the website

New Zealand: the link between Latin America and China

  • The best country in the world to Start a Business

  • The second best (after Singapore) in Ease of Doing Business

Recognising the potential of New Zealand on being a link between China and Latin America, Erdödy Consultancy Ltd and I Grow New Zealand signed an agreement between the two companies to drive mutual business between Erdödy Consultancy and I Grow.


I Grow is a New Zealand based corporate finance advisory firm that specialises in the following areas:

  • Capital Raising for high growth businesses;
  • Identification and negotiation of strategic partnerships and licensing agreements;
  • Merger & Acquisition Advisory services;
  • Market Entry Strategies for the USA and China;
  • Public Private Innovation Strategies and Reviews.


I Grow and Erdödy Consultancy have worked together on various projects since 2005 and have started to recognise the potential value of integrating Erdödy Consultancy’s Latin American networks with I Grow’s Chinese networks.

Erdödy Consultancy and I Grow have identified a number of broad opportunities to work together on in relation to a China / Latin American alliance, specifically identifying:

  • Latin American companies that are interested in developing business relationships in China, covering trade or investment in China.
  • Businesses in South America that are looking for expansion capital or which are being sold that could be of interest to Chinese Investors.
  • Identifying Chinese based businesses looking to expand its trade or investment activities into Latin America.

Based on the work I Grow has done to date in China since 2008 we see specific opportunities in the following areas:

  • Food and Beverage
  • Forestry and Wood products
  • Mining Resources
  • Venture Capital Investors – We are working with a number of groups that are interested in high growth opportunities in the Chinese market, which could be a channel for international firms to establish themselves in that market.

Working Together

I Grow and Erdödy Consultancy will look to identify projects which can leverage the capabilities and networks of the other firm with a view to generating a long term business relationship involving trade and investment activity between China and Latin America.

Value Proposition

I Grow has a dedicated resource based in China that is more flexible and responsive than the larger firms, as well as being more price competitive. In terms of the Latin America / China link we believe that New Zealand offers some unique advantages to leveraging this relationship, including time zones but more importantly New Zealand’s position as the first developed country to negotiate a Free Trade Agreement with China, and the position and status that provides for New Zealand Businesses and its partners.
