Coffee & Jam

Coffee & Jam is the city's most innovative networking event. It’s a great place to see ordinary people doing extraordinary things, meet people, learn about other events in Christchurch. As always, there's free coffee, tea, Grizzly Bagel bread, and jam for everyone!

At every Coffee & Jam, there are two speakers. One pitches their idea, project, event, or business and the other is an educational speaker who shares information for the community to share with their own networks, projects, events, and ideas.

Sound like your cup of tea (or coffee)? Join us every Tuesday at 12.30 in the EPIC building!
