As you know, Startup Weekends are organised by enthusiastic swarms of volunteers. We are also reliant on the kind generosity of our sponsors who provide cash and services that help keep Startup Weekends armed and fuelled.
Special thanks go to Massey University who are not only national sponsors of Startup Weekend in New Zealand, but also provided us with this weekend’s fantastic venue Te Ara Hihiko on the Wellington campus. TradeMe and Microsoft Bizspark have been big time supporters from the early days too. TeamWorkPM have jumped on board as national sponsors more recently. The company offers easy online project management. BNZ support a number of startup, tech and innovation initiatives around the country and are jolly friendly folks to deal with as well.
We also have a bunch of local organisations that regularly get behind Startup Weekends here in Wellington. It’s fair to say that our start-up ecosystem would not be as strong without the overall contribution of these guys. Please do check out the sponsor pages on the Wellington Startup Weekend website. Make sure you support and encourage our amazing sponsors whenever possible.
