Cii lunch in Christchurch – passing on the flame

The pizzas are on us as Rod heads down to Christchurch next Tuesday to meet with Canterbury Innovation Incubator Manager, Tim Chapman and the Armagh St tenants.

The Cii is New Zealand’s leading business incubation facility. Its main focus is on developing high growth high tech companies in Canterbury, and is facilitated by the likes of the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University, Microsoft, Telecom and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

The tenants’ businesses are truly innovative: 2D and 3D optimisation software; wireless mesh networks and language learning software are some examples.

2006 High Tech Entrepreneur, Rod is looking forward to meeting with the incubates and their start-up businesses. His mission is twofold – a burning curiosity of what people are developing down there, as well as a ready canvas of small businesses to connect with Xero.
