We’re thrilled to announce that the first prize for Startup Weekend Wellington HEALTH now includes two weeks at the Kiwi Landing Pad in San Francisco.

The Landing Pad was formed in 2011, and helps select, high-growth tech ventures from NZ by giving them a soft launching pad into the US tech community.

Sian Simpson, Community Manager, says, “We’re passionate about taking New Zealand tech to the world, and also making NZ a world-class place to live, with tech being the number one export.”

Supported by some impressive New Zealand tech investors, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and corporate sponsors, Kiwi Landing Pad offers NZ tech companies space at their office in San Francisco. Tenants get access to a wealth of experience, and can make invaluable networks in the US tech, business and investment scene.

“We enjoy being able to provide opportunities to enable entrepreneurs and the like to grow and thrive in ecosystems both locally and on a global stage”, says Simpson.

Tickets are now available for Startup Weekend Wellington HEALTH. Running from 6-8 November, it’s New Zealand’s first health-related Startup Weekend. You can also buy tickets to come see the final pitches on 8 November.
