What we're about

Everyone loves a good Startup story! And as organisers of the popular Startup Weekend Taranaki ( www.startuptaranaki.nz (http://startuptaranaki.nz/) ) we know the importance of sharing these stories - the good, the bad and the ugly. We also know the magic that happens when a group of energised people get in a room together and share ideas.

Startup Weekend Taranaki was a great success and we are keen to keep this community together, even grow it. But this Meetup group is not only for past and future Startup Weekend participants. It is open for everyone, who is interested in planning, founding and growing a business. For everyone who likes to be a part of this community, all ages, all backgrounds and different experiences,

The Startup Taranaki Meetup is a lively mix of guest speakers, workshops, idea sharing, problem solving and socialising. If you’re in a startup, have an interest in joining one or simply intrigued by the scene, this event is for you!

Join us and help shape this Meetup and build this community in Taranaki!

Startup Taranaki Meetup - Side Hustle Panel

Manifold Coworking & Event Space

Side Hustle: Another stream of income and the new job security. Even before COVID-19, entrepreneurial people have been diversifying their income with projects outside of their main job. Hear from a panel of people in different phases of their side hustles - those still in it, to those who have transitioned it to their full-time gig. Learn more about the little things you can do to start your own side hustle, if you’re so inspired. Speakers to be released soon! This event will be streamed on our Facebook page, or done online if necessary. We will update you closer to the date. Beer and pizza available if we’re live in person :)
