October Investor Evening

October Investor Evening
Join us for our inaugural online event

Tuesday 19th October –  5:30pm – 7pm
Venue: Zoom online
It is looking increasingly unlikely that we will be able to hold our October Investor Evening in person so we’re going online for this inaugural event. You will need to provide your own drinks and nibbles this time so make sure you have the pantry and fridge well stocked!! Register here.

Please save this Zoom link into your calendar.

We thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times and cannot wait to finally get the chance to once again showcase the thriving start-up community that exists in Ōtautahi.

If we can hold the event in person due to level changes, it will be hosted by Lane Neave as originally planned, and we will communicate any changes as soon as they are confirmed.

Check out our exciting line up:
