Invented Again: Test Ideas to Succeed Faster

Have an idea? Test it before you spend! Join us on this Podcast and IP Snap gameshow to validate start-ups and ideas quickly

What's it all about?

Join Matt Sagen and Kristian Slack from the Invented Again podcast at Do Box in New Plymouth for a fun hour about innovation, investment, and those parts of human nature that slow (or even stop) successful ventures. 

Have your own idea and want to get the chance to test it fast with our two experts? "IP Snaps" are for you - head to the Invented Again website and fill in the form prior to this session and be up for some intense discussions.

No Idea? No problem! Matt and Kristian will be demonstrating how big the opportunity is to become top-notch "Lookers" and build a business around that skill as well as around opportunities that they uncover through the Process. 

They will cover:

 - 2-3 IP Snaps

 - Limitations of the current innovation ecosystem and mindset and how to overcome them

 - The Principles that make for a good "looker" and delve a bit deeper into what constitutes a code of ethical behaviour ( AKA The Charter)

 - How to make Innovation Events more effective by "being evergreen" rather than "cramming" 


Places are limited so registration is essential.


*If you can't be there, you don't have to miss out: we will be live streaming this event on the Venture Taranaki Facebook page so you can join us virtually!

You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
