We are holding it at Ohariu Farm, about 30 minutes out of Wellington on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 February. While Ohariu Farm is not a winery, as is our usual M.O, it's in fact a working farm, with the same incredible vibe and atmosphere as previous summit venues. You don't have to wear red bands and a black singlet to attend though, and we will definitely be providing gorgeous wine.
The theme for this year is "Go Big or Go Home", to inspire us all to be more ambitious about the outcomes we are seeking from early-stage investment and how it can be a catalyst for exponential impact and value creation.
As always, we are lining up fantastic speakers and discussions, including stories from founders and investors who are "going big" or who have "gone big" and are now going again. We also want to explore what 15 years from now looks like and what we need to do to get there faster.
In a slight change from last year, the ticket price will be either inclusive or exclusive of dinner. We are holding the dinner at Boomrock, 15 minutes' drive away from the summit venue, and unfortunately, they can't quite accommodate all of us. But given that every year a number of summit attendees don't actually make it to dinner, we are confident that those of you who especially enjoy the summit dinner will be able to make it. It is nevertheless first in first served!!
