Coffee & Jam featuring Wynn Williams and Jeffrey Ling

We are delighted to announce that the next Coffee & Jam event will be an in-person meetup hosted at Vision Restaurant on Ara Institute of Canterbury city campus!

Come join us on Friday 30th October as we will first hear from Phoebe Davies from Wynn Williams, Te Ōhaka’s official legal sponsor. Phoebe will be speaking about the importance of understanding the legal fundamentals for startups and how Wynn Williams plays a key role in supporting early-stage founders with legal matters that are most commonly faced by startups.

After the break, we’ll hear from Jeffrey Ling – former VP of Taiwan’s Startup Stadium Accelerator and ex-programme manager for Creative HQ’s Lightning Lab Tourism Accelerator. Jeffrey is also an experienced startup founder, advisor, and investor as well as Te Ōhaka’s brand new Incubation Manager. At this event, Jeffrey will provide an overview of what the Startup Incubation Programme at Te Ōhaka looks like, the benefits that founders can expect to gain from the programme and how early-stage founders can apply to be a part of the programme.

If you are a startup founder and want to take your startup to the next level, you’ll want to come along to this Coffee and Jam. We look forward to seeing you all in person very soon!

Note: This venue capacity is limited to 60 attendees so please make sure you book your ticket in advance.
