What to expect
Doors open at 11 a.m.; get there early to get your coffee. The first 50 attendees receive a FREE COFFEE courtesy of Startup Queenstown Lakes.
Programming starts at 11:15 a.m. Hear from a local entrepreneur followed by a short Q&A with our emcee of the day, NZ Entrepreneur publisher Richard Liew.
We finish Entrepreneur Coffee Jam for 2019 with a bang and joining us in the hot seat is the co-founder of Revology and local sustainability champion, Monique Kelly.
After 14 years spent working with the UN, she founded Revology with her partner, Alex Guichard, in 2014. The Wanaka based start-up is focused on bringing new, sustainably sourced plant-based materials from the R&D stage to the market.
Flax (linum ustassium) is the primary fibre used by Revology with potential to use the same technology for other fibres such as harakeke, wool, hemp etc. The parts produced are lighter than carbon fibre and slightly stronger than fibre glass. Using this technology and circular design principles, objects created by the design studio include a chair (released onto the market in 2019) as well as a bike, baby box (currently under development).
The Revology concept store is opening in December 2019 at the Precinct in Helwick Street, Wanaka focusing on materials and rethinking design for a sustainable economy. It will curate not only Revology objects but objects from other designers with a similar ethos.
Following the presentations, participants have an opportunity to share amongst the group, ask for help or input on an issue, and share successes.
The formal meeting concludes by noon, and everyone is invited to stay around from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch.
