Ministry of Awesome’s Tech Activator Sessions are made up of 20-minute mentoring sessions where tech entrepreneurs of all sizes and stages talk through their tech startup, venture or idea and get focused feedback from our Startup Activator and a veteran panel of tech experts. This is your opportunity to use their expertise and networks to ensure your best possible chance of success.

Spaces are limited, and the programme is almost always sold out so make sure you get in quick.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Select a 20-minute appointment that works for you and tell us about your idea or your business.
  2. Feel free to bring along any materials that will assist you (notes, drawings, websites, photos, presentations, etc.) or just bring you.
  3. These sessions are always sold out so please show up on time, get ready to focus, and gear up for a great session.

We can’t wait to help you make your dream a reality or help you get on that road to successful entrepreneurship whatever that looks like for you. 

All sessions take place at Ministry of Awesome, Ground Floor, Kahukura Building, Corner of Moorhouse Ave and Madras St, Christchurch.

Angel Association NZ 2019 Summit – 8th/9th November

AANZ are holding this year’s Summit in Christchurch at Pemberton which is 15 minutes’ drive from town in a beautiful country setting.

The theme this year is “Delivering Exponential Value … how growing a venture from New Zealand makes it uniquely possible”.

Recent summits have been inspiring for the growing confidence and awareness about the unique and powerful approach New Zealanders take to scaling businesses. We have a capacity for empathy which gives our ventures a competitive advantage and a foundation that sets them apart from others striving for traction in global markets.

At this summit we will explore how amplifying and leveraging empathy and our New Zealandness puts us ahead of the curve. We are at a tipping point where New Zealand and our businesses can set the standard for how to deliver exponential impact and value while taking care of each other and the planet.

Register here 

We will be repeating our Runway event for founders and our investor directors who are looking to scale and prove value quickly on Wednesday 6 November. This is an invitation only event – you need to be a member of one of the Angel groups in NZ to attend.

On the first morning of the summit we set the context for the two days by reviewing the year and exploring what it means to be a venture scaling from New Zealand. In the afternoon we dig into case studies and data. And on Friday morning we focus on how we amplify value. All of this will be shot through with perspectives from people who are at coal face doing this thing!!

Please note we only have half the allocated Early Bird tickets left, so get in quick if you want to take advantage of this offer.
