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) Anya Hornsey
Powerhouse Ventures is a Christchurch based technology incubator that invests in ground-breaking intellectual property generated through scientific and technological research. Anya's key focus at Powerhouse is deploying Powerhouse Seed Funds into pre-revenue early stage ventures. Anya will bring the Coffee and Jam community up to date on all things Powerhouse.
2) Paul Buchanan
Paul is based in Christchurch and heads up MYOB’s southern Field Managers. He has extensive experience in retail sales, account management, training and management and has helped a number of SME businesses in developing their sales capability. He is passionate about ensuring start ups are set up to succeed through the use of technology and drawing on expertise in the wider start up ecosystem.
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 bread.
