unicorn factory

The Story

Unicorn Factory officially launched on 7th February 2018 in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand. I had just finished up a job in startup and I was looking for my next challenge.

The idea for the platform came from my experiences as a freelancer. I found it really hard to showcase the work I did to the local business community. In about a day I built the first version of Unicorn Factory (as seen in the photo)ย and launched it with 8 freelancers.

Today, we have over 500 freelancers (all in NZ) on the website and we have worked with over 1600 Kiwi businesses.


The Mission

To make it easy for Kiwi businesses to find and hire local freelancers for their next project.



You can fail doing what you don't love, so why not just do what you love.

About Me

Hey there. My name is Connor, I am the founder of Unicorn Factory.

Unicorn Factory exists because I want to support the local business and freelance community. If it wasn't for the endless generosity of people who have supported me throughout my professional career, I wouldn't be doing what I love.

It is my mission to do the same for the next generation of Kiwi entrepreneurs and freelancers.
