Tim admits that when he started setting up online businesses he felt lonely, unsupported and broke.

“Aro’s social initiatives all exist to support people in growing their awesome ideas by providing a space for digital marketing conversations, questions and advice.”

Wellington’s supportive tech community and relaxed culture had allowed the Aro Digital team to “live and work authentically.”

“We’re 100% ourselves in business, meaning we skate to meetings, avoid suits like the plague, have adventures with the team, and chase our curiosity endlessly.”
