Electrify Aotearoa will be showcasing and celebrating some of New Zealand's leading women across our tech ecosystem whilst sharing valuable knowledge to help with further start-up growth in Aotearoa.

Hear stories of grit and Kiwi ingenuity from start-up founders (including Kathryn Topp from Yabble - an Aspire portfolio company), and learn from a series of masterclasses with top investors that will help you to level-up your start-up experience.

Our Investment Managers, Molly Yang and Maria Jose (MJ) Alvarez will be running one of these masterclasses 'what to expect in the first year', covering everything from raising capital to building your team.

MJ will also be joining a panel discussion on 'Aotearoa's advantage in deep-tech' alongside Emily Blythe of Pyper Vision and Imche Fourie of Outset Ventures.

From aspiring founders to experienced operators, we invite Aotearoa’s start-up community to join us to celebrate our homegrown diversity at Electrify Aotearoa. Yes, this event does focus on celebrating our Kiwi women, however the content of the event is for everyone!

WHEN: Thursday 14 October 2021, 7:45am - 6:30pm
WHERE: Isaac Theatre Royal, Christchurch
