Coffee and Jam #311

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.

This week's speakers are:

1. Clive Antony  - Media Mates

2. Séku Skandan - Startup Weekend

Séku is part of the team organising the upcoming Startup Weekend, a 54 hour event that brings together Christchurch designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things.

All Techstars Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback!

Séku will speak about the event and why it’s important for the best of Ōtautahi’s curious minds to make use of this opportunity.


Coffee and Jam is your opportunity to meet new people in the Christchurch entrepreneurial ecosystem and indulge in a little bit of free coffee, jam and fresh bakery bread.

If you have an idea you'd like to pitch get in touch with Milena at
