Coffee & Jam

Coffee & Jam is Christchurch's longest running weekly meet up for entrepreneurial-minded people. It’s a great place to see ordinary people doing extraordinary things, be inspired, network, and share in an innovative space.

At Coffee & Jam, you will meet new people in the Christchurch entrepreneurial ecosystem and you’ll hear from local, national, and global speakers. Every week two speakers lead the show. The first is a new entrepreneur that shares their recent entrepreneurial journey and pitches their idea, event, business or project. The second is a seasoned veteran entrepreneur or start-up authority who shares their entrepreneurial journey, wisdom, and the lessons they've learned along the way.

And, as always, there's free coffee, tea, Grizzly Bagel bread, and jam for everyone!

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