Callaghan Innovation, New Zealand's Innovation Agency, engages with over 500 Software as a Service businesses. Recently Callaghan assisted to co-ordinate over 150 NZ software innovators at the world's biggest software event, the annual SaaStr conference in San Jose. The presence of the NZ contingent outnumbered representation from any other visiting country, prompting special mentions and suggestions of a new event Down Under.
Join Neville Gollan from Callaghan Innovation and the ITP ChCh branch to hear:

  • A brief overview of Callaghan Innovation
  • A specific report back from the SaaStra conference, including key takeaway messages
  • Tips for those who wish to operate in the Software as a Service space (e.g. Start-up entrepreneurs, IT graduates etc)
  • What is open to the above via Callaghan

The presentation will be followed by a networking opportunity over light refreshments.
