Electrify Aotearoa will take place on May 26, 2022 at Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch. The all-day conference will feature several of NZ’s top women founders to inspire and connect with the next generation of women-led startups.

Partnering with the Ministry of Awesome, this conference aims to encourage more ambitious Kiwi women to take the leap into startups, by showcasing women founders and operators at different stages of their journey with tales of courage and triumph.

The conference will involve keynotes and masterclasses led by mavens of the tech industry including Sharesies’ Brooke Roberts, Yabble’s Kathryn Topp, Outset DeepTech’s Imche Fourie, and Theresa Gattung, NZ Lead for SheEO, and Chair of Women in Entrepreneurship at the University of Auckland Business School.

The event is being backed by some of New Zealand’s most important organisations for the startup and innovation ecosystem, including MBIE, Callaghan Innovation, New Zealand Growth Capital Partners, and AWS.
