Unlimited Potential organising Wellington to the World (W2W) event
Wellington’s entrepreneurial technology companies have the opportunity to take their businesses global at the upcoming inaugural Wellington to the World (W2W) event.

W2W, an initiative of Wellington-based ICT professionals’ network Unlimited Potential supported by international ex-pat association KEA, will provide a launching pad for six Wellington firms from the information, communication and technology (ICT) sector.

Expressions of interest are now being sought from new, enterprising, and innovative ICT companies – based in Wellington – to participate in the event.

Those who register interest will be asked to submit a short business summary detailing their business/product/service. They will then be interviewed by a panel of business mentors and technology advisors from Unlimited Potential, KEA and partner organisations. The most promising six will be put forward to present their business cases at W2W on Friday 7 November. The pitches will be video-cast to a global web audience.

“We are looking for fresh talent and new opportunities for companies and individuals who do not already have a wide public profile. The focus is on high production values, novel technology opportunities and global reach,” says Marie-Claire Andrews, Chair of Unlimited Potential.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for businesses seeking capital, mentoring or new market channels for their technology products and services. Participating tech businesses will have the opportunity to network with existing ICT companies, business ‘angels’ and ICT researchers from Victoria University of Wellington at the event.”

The event W2W: showcasing Wellington to the World is scheduled for Friday, 7 November 2008 (NZ time), 3.30pm at the Civic Suite, Wellington Town Hall.
