1 Day, networking, learning all about entrepreneurship, capital raising, crowd funding, business planning, social media engagement and MORE!: Wellington, New Zealand, November 20th 2014

Are you an entrepreneur? a small business with a great idea or wanting to get your idea to start-up? Are you want to look offshore and find a way of growing and developing your business? #thegathering is the term we here @EntreHub use to describe how we bring entrepreneurs, start-ups and small business together to gain practical insights into how to get that idea off the ground or step up into the next phase of growth. In doing so we gather together in the exchange of ideas, connecting and sharing knowledge.

Well, EntreHub is bringing our next #gathering to Wellington, New Zealand on the 20th of November for a day of insights, learning, conversation and more. Facilitated by EntreHub Co-Founder, Matthew Tukaki, we'll get down to the nitty gritty of entrepreneurship while at the same time using the day as a practical learning experience and forum for you to get your ideas across. Matthew Tukaki is a serial entrepreneur who has been behind the foundation of Sustain Group and EntreHub as well as tech start-ups Samsung Consumables, Dattatech, Syntropy and MXL. He has led the worlds oldest and largest employment company, Drake, and either Chairs or sits as a Director of the Boards of a number of public and private company's.

We mix practical learning and case studies with actual networking by spending the time at both the start of the day and at close by giving you the opportunity to also make a pitch (our experience is you never know if your future partners and investors are sitting in the same room) about your idea, business or business concept. The day will be followed by informal networking where we also be exploring future trends, market and growth opportunities (mainly related to what is happening offshore for those interested in growing a regional or global business).

The agenda for the day will cover the following:
