When: every first Tuesday of the month, from 4-6pm

Where: Te Kapehu Whetu InnoNative Business Space, 185 Lower Dent St, Whangarei

What to bring: a business idea and some information on what problem you are solving, what does your solution look like; who are your customers, how do you find new customers; how big is the market; how are you making money, what are your revenue streams; what are your growth challenges; where do you need some help. The more questions you have for us, the better prepared you come, the better we can support you.

How do we operate: we listen to you, you ask us questions, we have a dialogue – Chatham House Rules apply (what is said in the room, stays in the room)
