NZICT invitation to Technology Innovation Week 2013

04 Apr 13

Technology Innovation Week 2013 is about getting past the idea and understanding the roadmap from inception through to success of a New Zealand technology business.

NZICT is inviting both end-users and channel partners to the three-day event at Stamford Plaza Hotel, Auckland from May 15-17.

Educating business owners, entrepreneurs, and anyone who has an interest in promoting the success of a New Zealand technology company, on how to navigate the pathway to success.

It doesn’t matter where the entry point is on the journey of a successful company, Technology Innovation Week 2013 will be a must attend event that provides answers to what next.

Industry leaders will take the stage with their own stories - the good and the bad. Collectively, they will talk through the various stages in the life cycle of a technology company, give advice, answer questions and enable decisions that will create future success stories.

Networking events include sessions on pitch training, dealmaking discussions, a gala dinner featuring Auckland Mayor Len Brown and a cocktail evening celebrating New Zealand's Innovation Heroes.

Exciting and fast paced sessions that will celebrate success and encourage discussion.
