Coffee & Jam #254

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.

Join us for our 254th Coffee and Jam session. You'll get your weekly dosage of inspiration and see what is happening in the Christchurch Startup and innovation ecosystem.

Lab5 is back! The boys from Christ's College will once again kick us off this week with their pitches. The boys will work to solve a real-world problem within the week, so your feedback and advice is crucial for their development. Come on down to EPIC and hear from the groups, and feel free to network with them after to find out more about their ideas and give them some support.
