Startup junkie looking to bring weekend experience to Northland
(sticK - 2 August 2012 ) Northlander Larissa Matheson found the Auckland Startup Weekend (June 15 – 17) so inspiring, she got herself down to the version (July 27 – 29).
Considering that two days before the Auckland event she’d never heard of the entrepreneur/business building competition, she obviously enjoyed the experience.
That may’ve been because she
was, and still is, part of the Queen City’s winning team
– SmileToday (Larissa's on the left of the photo).
(SmileToday is a social entrepreneurship model where you not
only donate money, you also donate a smile. The charity then
gets to use the smiles however they like, but you also
receive a smile in return).
