About Kinga VoxPop Limited

VoxPop was incubated in New Zealand’s public broadcaster RNZ and in January 2020, at the very beginning of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the co-founders Peter Fowler and Andrew McMillan separated into the stand-alone company Kinga Voxpop Ltd. 

Peter and Andrew retain 91 percent of shares in Kinga VoxPop Ltd, with two “mum and dad” shareholders holding the difference. We are still a lean startup but are surviving on sales revenue from new business and support from our valued clients. Our corporate values remain the same and follow a public service ethos, developing tools that keep you relevant and engaged with your audience in the ever changing media landscape.
