Vaughan is the Founder of Vend, a cloud-based retail software for small to medium retailers worldwide. The Vend team holds three core values dearly in their hearts; to delight retailers, to do the impossible, and to take care of one another.

Vaughan also co-founded OMG Tech! an initiative to encourage kids of all backgrounds, genders, and ages to get into technology. It not only covers coding but all newly developed technology such as robots, drones, nanotech, teleportation, and hover-boards. They give kids the chance to explore and get inspired by technology that they will be experts in ten years from now.

He dreams big and likes to set himself impossible challenges; whether it is cycling the length of New Zealand solo, running 1,000 kilometers, or building a $100M venture.
