    Want to energize your entrepreneurial spirit? Meet-up with other founders, hackers, hustlers, investors and startup enthusiasts at our monthly social event.    Entrepreneur Coffee Jam is FREE to all startup enthusiasts!

    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.
     

    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.
