Techweek, Talented Tauranga

A gorgeous drive from the Auckland kick-off to Tauranga had us discovering cruise control, state highway 2Eh! and into a stunning Tauranga waterfront packed with people enjoying the official opening of their new Tidal Steps. We had a cheeky beer, bought some sunglasses and headed out to see Pascale and the team at the Windermere Campus of Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.

And what a stunning new building they have - check out the photos!

Pascale, Jo and all the Venture Centre team have brought together 8 teams of students to create, validate and pitch a full business idea ... all in 2 days - now that's a Mashup!

  • 7 of the 8 teams - enjoy them all
