Free Tauranga Startup Cafe Event – 17th August @ Basestation



With Tauranga’s 5th Startup Weekend only 7 weeks away excitement is building among the city’s entrepreneurial community. Startup Weekend is an intense 54 hour event that allows participants to develop an innovative idea from concept to launch, culminating in pitching it to a panel of judges. The Startup Weekend framework, tools and mentors ensure everyone who takes part goes away with a clear appreciation of how to turn an idea into a successful startup business, as well as having made the local connections to support its development. Indeed, a number of groups every year proceed to seek funding and launch their startup idea into the market.

In preparation for the main event, VentureCentre is running Startup Cafe, where those who are interested can get information about Startup Weekend and hear about the tools & methods used to create success at Startup Weekends around the world.

So if you have skills, passion & want to create something exciting & new with keen, talented people, then Startup Café is the event to help you get started.

Whether or not you are taking part in Tauranga Startup Weekend, Startup Café will serve as an introduction to the Lean Canvas and the application of Lean Startup Principles and the Customer Development process developed by Steve Blank and refined by Eric Ries.

When: 17th August, 5.30-7pm

Where: Basestation, 148 Durham Street, Tauranga
