Meet Cameron.

Hello! I'm Cameron Templer, an entrepreneur and community advocate based here in the beautiful city of Tauranga, New Zealand. I'm very excited to be running to represent the Welcome Bay Ward on the Tauranga City Council. I am going to serve my community and with your help, shape the future of our home.

Tauranga has always been my home.

For more than 18 years, I've been lucky enough to call this place my home. I grew up here in Welcome Bay and attended Tauranga Boys' College, Tauranga Intermediate and Selwyn Ridge Primary. I spent most of my schooling years playing cricket and hanging out with the same group of guys I met at Welcome Bay kindergarten. Here is a picture of us at Welcome Bay kindergarten aged 4 and when we all turned 18.

More than the eye can see.

In 2020, I studied medicine at the University of Otago. During that year, I wanted to make some extra money, so I started my first online business, and it went well. In 2021, while continuing my medical studies, I developed an interest in software development and founded my first startup—a blockchain ticketing company aimed at eliminating fraud and scalping in secondary markets. One thing led to another, and I went from 8AM anatomy lectures to pitching to some of the biggest venture capital firms in the world. I managed to raise $1.5 million in pre-seed funding and decided to take a break from medical school to focus on my business. Fast forward 18 months, the company had scaled significantly. I had 14 employees, and we were working with some of the biggest names in the music industry. It was then that an enterprise approached me and bought out the company.

Since then, I've successfully launched several startups and businesses, each fueled by innovation and a commitment to solving real-world problems. Currently, I'm the CEO of ScoredManager, an investor backed software company dedicated to optimizing indoor sports venue management. I also proudly own and operate Tauranga Indoor Sports, a beloved local hub that fosters physical well-being and community engagement.

Beyond entrepreneurship, I'm driven by a strong desire to contribute to the betterment of our community. Serving as a council member representing the Welcome Bay ward, I will bring fresh perspectives, innovation, and a deep-rooted commitment to our community's growth and well-being.

My journey has been marked by an exciting blend of technology, business, and a heartfelt dedication to solving big problems and making a positive impact. I'm fueled by the belief that through hard work, collaboration and innovation, we can create a more vibrant, inclusive, and prosperous community for all.

Let's connect and work together to shape a brighter future for Welcome Bay and Tauranga!
