Lightning Lab is New Zealand’s premiere business accelerator programme that supports, and invests in, early-stage entrepreneurs and their high-growth tech startups. Startups are paid to work full-time on their startup and have access to more than 100 mentors and advisors from across New Zealand and around the globe. Lightning Lab Christchurch’s first programme ran in August – November of 2015. Learn more about the Lightning Lab programme or if you have any questions please reach out to Programme Director Geoff Brash or Programme Manager Charlie Tomlinson.
LAB TECHS AND INTERNS
Lab Techs and Interns play an integral part in the Lightning Lab Programme. We have a great group of Lab Techs and Interns on board with Lightning Lab Christchurch who are getting amongst the excitement of the lab and working teams in a variety of ways. Find out more about the Lab Tech and Intern roles.
Mentors play a fundamental role in the success of the startups in the programme. Equally, mentors have the potential to be involved with globally ambitious, high growth tech companies. Check out our fantastic mentor cohort for Lightning Lab Christchurch 2015 here.
Christchurch is a flexible, resilient and entrepreneurial city. In recent years, it’s become a world-class hub for IT innovation. New Zealand’s second largest city, it is known for developing innovative products and services to meet niche markets both at home and globally.
As the city rebuilds, its creative and innovative spirit has come alive. There is great opportunity in the Canterbury region where entrepreneurs and startups can lead the way and define the new Christchurch.
