Tauranga Startup Weekend - The bestest yet.
What can you expect?
Anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea. Teams organically form around the top ideas (determined by popular vote). Then, it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend wraps up with teams presenting their startup to local entrepreneurial leaders with an opportunity for critical feedback.
What are you waiting for?
Found a company, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside your usual 9-to-5.
You are guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.
