Lightning Lab Christchurch

Week 6: Lightning Lab Christchurch

Over half way through, and just 38 days until Lightning Lab Christchurch Demo Day!

Phase of the Programme

Traction, traction, traction. That’s the big focus at the moment. We are also making the transition from 1 minute pitches to 5 minute pitches as teams dive further into their customers and market and as Demo Day quickly approaches.

Anna Guenther from PledgeMe came down from Wellington and spoke about Crowd Funding. With such an engaging presentation style, Anna’s story was a great way to start the week.

Brett Holland, Head of Acceleration at Creative HQ, returned to Christchurch to present on financial modelling. He also took the time to walk through templates with each of the teams so they can prepare their financial models, or “story telling” as referred to by Brett.

Show & Tell

This week each team showcased the progress they have made so far. It was a great way for everyone to gain a better understanding of what teams have been doing and especially appreciating the work of the CTO’s.
