Jump Start Taranaki 2019

Know the challenges, know you need to innovate? Come join us at the Jump Start Taranaki to build collaboration and co-create solutions!

What's it all about?

Why Jump Start? Jump Start is an agile, rapid and effective accelerator that takes a design-led approach to crafting ideas for technologies to effect positive change for our communities, businesses, education and environment, that can then be shared, tested and potentially driven forward by collaborative cross-sector teams.

Why Taranaki? The Taranaki region now finds itself at the forefront of some of the most innovative conversations about Aotearoa - New Zealand’s future as it hosts the Just Transition Summit and explores what Taranaki 2050 means as it leads the way in exploring what a low emissions economy will look like.

Why Now? Our nation and our world have finite resources, and technology has the power to help us move to a more sustainable future.  Our time is running out to achieve these breakthroughs, so if not now, when?

As part of their commitment to the Taranaki economy, Venture Taranaki, Massey University, Microsoft, The Collaborative and BAF – Bishop’s Action Foundation have partnered to run a Jump Start Workshop to accelerate the adoption of digital technologies into primary industries, enterprise and communities across our region.

As this is a free event, please note that Jump Start partners support local businesses in the Taranaki and encourage all workshop participants to enjoy the fresh air of the city and explore the local cafés and restaurants for their lunch break, as food will not be supplied in the workshop.
