The second month of the year has almost gone and there is no better time than the present to make good on the resolutions you’ve made for yourself.

Whether you’re thinking of launching your own startup, joining an ambitious new startup team, or really getting into the Christchurch and Canterbury innovation scene, you’ve got some incredible opportunities coming up to meet your new tribe.

Dip your toes in by coming along to the startup ecosystem fixture – Coffee & Jam.

Coffee & Jam takes place on the second Tuesday of every month from 12:30pm to 1:30PM at EPIC.

Here, you’ll find a broad cross section of people all focused on entrepreneurship, startups, and innovation in our region.

Just Google ‘coffeeandjam’ to find upcoming event details.

Also check out Canterbury Angel’s Pitch & Pizza event.

Canterbury Angels had a record 2019 with $845,000 raised and nine deals done.

2020 looks to surpass if momentum is anything to go by.

At Pitch & Pizza, you’ll get to hear some practice pitches from local startups then eat pizza with the crowd afterward.

Finally, if you’ve always wanted to be part of a startup team but didn’t have an idea (or a team), we’ve got you covered!

This year’s ultimate intro to entrepreneurship, Startup Weekend, will take place on 22-24 May.

Christchurch is a city that has rolled out the red carpet for startups and innovators – so get amongst it! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
