Coffee & Jam #255 SHOUTOUTS

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 255th Coffee and Jam session. You'll get your weekly dosage of inspiration and see what is happening in the Christchurch Startup and innovation ecosystem.


Once again we'll have the pleasure to hear from the Lab5 boys of Christ's College, this is the 4th week of the programme, but a first for this cohort. The boys have devised an idea to target a real world problem of their choosing, and they'll need your support and feedback to help them develop their solutions. Drop on in to support them and you can even network with the boys afterwards.

 We'll also hear from Chris Thomson, presenting the Butterfly Cup. ButterflyCup has patents granted for its innovative method of closing a paper cup. ButterflyCup eliminates the need for plastic lids, thus reducing the associated drips, leaks and splashes, giving consumers a more enjoyable and relaxed drinking experience. Cup lids account for over 100 tons of plastic waste per day worldwide, so each saved lid helps protect our environment! There is a further reduction in carbon footprint by reducing logistics, transportation and waste disposal requirements.
