Ackama launches in style at Wellington Museum

This month, Rabid Technologies relaunched as Ackama.

As well as all of the name changes - from a new website right down to the sign on the front door - we decided it would be a good idea to mark the occasion with a party. After all, it was also Rabid/Ackama's eighth birthday this month.

On the 20th September 2018 over 100 guests joined Ackama staff at the Attic at Wellington Museum to celebrate Ackama's new name and expansion into Australia, acquiring two new businesses there, Squareweave and the digital arm of Plot Media.

Guests were entertained by speeches by CEO Breccan, Squareweave founder Will Dayble, visiting from Australia, and board chair Victoria Spackman.

There was food and drinks and music, and as guests left they were gifted with some takeaway Lashings brownies to end the evening. Thanks to all who came along, and all who have supported us over these eight years to reach this point. We look forward to the next eight!
