We are proud to support Startup Weekend Pasifika 2017, happening November 3 – 5 in Porirua, Wellington. Launch your Pasifika (P.I. / Māori) startup in this weekend-long entrepreneurship journey

Pasifika in Porirua – a Startup Weekend like no other!

If you have Pacific Island or Māori heritage or have a strong connection to the Māori or Pacific Island community, and want to try your hand at a startup, then this event is for you!
What is a Startup Weekend?

Startup Weekends are 54 hour events where designers, developers, ideas folk and doers get together to see if they have the ideas and the drive to work together, solve problems and start a business.

They are fast paced weekends that combine elements of lean startup, customer and idea validation, marketing hustle, team work and MVPs to culminate in Sunday night pitches to a panel of judges and a group of your peers.

See if you’ve got what it takes – sign up to startup!

What are the perks?

A Startup Weekend is an experience that you remember.

Meet likeminded people, build networks, learn about yourself and others, grow new skills and take the steps towards launching a business.

From Friday evening right through to Sunday evening, we feed you, water you, and hype you up. Our expert team of mentors works with you over the weekend, to help you tackle and overcome hurdles.
