Unleash Space Expo (5-6pm)

Experience the meeting of creative and entrepreneurial minds at our expo, where we're turning Unleash Space into a marketplace of creative ideas! Our Unleash Space Expo is a great place to take a peek at Aotearoa's future! You'll get to network with fellow problem-solvers, participate in interactive activities, and have a friendly chat with the people behind the startups.

The startups are also there to conduct market research, so come along to help shape their development.

Kickoff Guest speaker: Ang Nayyar – founder of StrutFit (from 6pm)
