Alex McCall

Choice & Squawk Squad

This Otumoetai College grad is unstoppable, with two organisations under his belt already, this mover and shaker will stop at nothing to inspire the world to choose purpose over profit.

Alex McCall hails from Tauranga and has founded two organisations using technology and innovation to deliver social change.  Squawk Squad a highly successful social enterprise that aims to connect and engage a country in the protection and growth of our native bird life and Choice a new way to pay that all but eliminates merchant transaction fees, and gives those savings to charities. Alex is excited about the potential of technology to enable social impact and believes New Zealand has the ability to be a global incubator for innovation, technology and social entrepreneurship.
