Tech Activator Session #39

Ministry of Awesome's Tech Activator Sessions are made up of 20-minute mentoring sessions where tech entrepreneurs of all sizes and stages talk through their tech startup, venture or idea and get focused feedback from our Startup Activator and a veteran panel of tech experts. This is your opportunity to use their expertise and networks to ensure your best possible chance of success.

Spaces are limited, and the programme is almost always sold out so make sure you get in quick here.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Select a 20-minute appointment that works for you and tell us about your idea or your business.

  2. Feel free to bring along any materials that will assist you (notes, drawings, websites, photos, presentations, etc.)  or just bring you.

  3. These sessions are always sold out so please show up on time, get ready to focus, and gear up for a great session.


We can't wait to help you make your dream a reality or help you get on that road to successful entrepreneurship whatever that looks like for you.  

All sessions take place at Ministry of Awesome, Ground Floor, Kahukura Building, Corner of Moorhouse Ave and Madras St, Christchurch. 

Panelists are;
