What happened during Startup Weekend 2019?
And That is a Wrap!
Before this weekend, never in my life had I participated in a Startup Weekend. I’d seen the Tauranga one being promoted for a number of years now and every time I saw it I was interested but for every reason under the sun, I’d never shown up to one.
Put 55 entrepreneurs, developers, and designers together in one room and they'll establish a Startup Enterprise in 54 hours (with mentors, tools, food and stationery provided of course)!
Here is the list of mentors, their superpowers, conveniently organised in their 'SuperPower Team' so that you know who to call on for what.
Meet Leonie, with this being her fifth time mentoring, she knows Startup Weekend more than your average Joe (or should I say Jane) and is ready to help get some ideas off the ground!
This is one entrepreneur you’ll want to meet - Laura is a founder, investor and mentor in deep tech start-ups - intellectual property rich and bleeding edge opportunities
She’s all about social entrepreneurship - meet Kristen; a writer, producer, and social entrepreneur who has crossed the fence to join the impact investing scene.
An entrepreneur, investor, director and trustee. Steve knows the value of money and the power it can have when used to grow ideas that do good into sustainable innovations.
It’s been a year since eight awesome concepts were developed into enterprises at Tauranga Startup Weekend 2017. Let’s check them out!
