Ethos of Ketchup

Our Journey

Ketchup emerged from the entrepreneurial spirit of a Wellington-based SME business owner with a vision to create a symbiotic ecosystem for local businesses. As the founder of Cognitiv, a company at the forefront of IT solutions, I've experienced firsthand the transformative power of personal connections and the effectiveness of word-of-mouth and referral-based marketing.


Our Philosophy

In an age where digital marketing often presents a costly barrier for small businesses, we stand as a testament to the value of authentic, face-to-face interactions. Ketchup isn't just a platform; it's a community-driven initiative that thrives on the personal touch - where a handshake has more value than keyboard clicks, and industry sector exclusivity is banished. We welcome multiple business owners from the same industry sectors to ketchup in the same space. Ketchup is a level playground for all business owners. Join our network – Download the Ketchup app, and register your business.
