Unlimited Potential is a network based in Wellington, New Zealand. It aims to connect ICT professionals and let them leverage the power of community. Start-Up is a media rich site aiming to connect tech start-ups and their entrepreneurs with good quality resources from all over the place. Silicon Welly is a community of Wellington based, and New Zealand owned, technology and creative businesses, individuals and organisations who together are making Wellington a high quality global hi-tech hub.

Clearly there is significant overlap between these three organisation, and they’re all getting together to celebrate the latest issue of Start-Up magazine (published by Unlimited Magazine which I write for) and to general celebrate all that is young, vibrant, creative and tech in New Zealand.

The event will be held on July 10th at 6pm in Wellington, I’m planning on making the trip up for it and I’d recommend anyone with an interest in tech, entrepreneurship, web community and the creative industries to head along – looking forward to seeing some of you there!

  • One of the reasons that Wellington has emerged as a breeding ground for technology entrepreneurship is the fact that we use our networks to leverage the creativity that resides here. When I researched they way technology networks behave, I found that most of the new ideas happened on the boundaries where diverse communities overlapped. Hence the significance of the “Start-UP” event on 10th July.

    The event will be held at the Rowing Club, on our wonderful waterfront. See you there!
