James Elliott – CEO of KITT Technologies and KITT Property Management

James is a property investor and former committee member of Capital PIA. He’s also an angel investor, investing in early stage technology startups. Originally starting with KITT in 2017 as an investor and advisor on the needs of property investors, he became CEO in late 2020.

KITT are reinventing property management through the use of technology and scalable customer service. They provide full-service property management in 16 territories across NZ, including Wellington, Porirua, Hutt Valley, Kapiti, Christchurch, Auckland, Hamilton, Dunedin, Nelson, Palmerston North, Tauranga and Timaru.

Building the Future of Property Management

The challenges of addressing the problems of a legacy industry are fascinating. Setting out to build the fastest growing PM company, with global aspirations, is definitely not your normal business experience.
But the issues we are dealing with at scale, are the same issues that every property investor has to address; and the systems and design thinking which we use to create systems to manage thousands of properties, can help the individual investor reach their goals safely.

– Why Property Management needs a shakeup
– How technology startups are built and funded (angel and VC investment)
– How KITT have approached the problem
– Challenges and growing pains
