Organisers of the inaugural Startup Weekend Hawke’s Bay say the 2014 programme contains many opportunities for participants to engage with mentors and coaches, to assist in getting ideas realised, and pitches ready.
See the full programme on the homepage of this website.
Organisers say the event is one third sold out, with 15 days to go. There are still tickets available and these can be purchased on this website.
People with technology related business ideas, coders, graphic designers and people in marketing and sales, are encouraged to participate.
Organisers say employers should view the weekend as an opportunity for existing employees to obtain valuable new skills that can be transferred into their workplaces. It is a professional development opportunity.
Benefits of attending include the potential of assisting and building new products, and also learning new methods and models of business creation and market validation.
