Accelerate 2012

The 3rd annual Accelerate event is all go for February 13 in sunny Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

Accelerate is an event for HiTech entrepreneurs and investors to get to get together in a relaxed environment and share stories. This year we’ve timed it so we can finish the day with Gin Wigmore and friends in the Black Barn amphitheater.

In the first session I’ll kick off with a Xero deep dive covering such things as our funding, building the team internationally, approaches to marketing and hopefully pass on some useful things we’ve learned over the years. We’ll then have another 5 companies doing rapid fire presentations of their businesses and experiences. We have a couple of slots left for those sessions.

So this years program should be useful for companies looking at expanding internationally and/or planning an IPO especially.
