David ten Have – “Why unsuccessful entrepreneurs give the best advice”

Young Chamber is delighted to announce that their next event will feature guest speaker Dave ten Have on “Why unsuccessful entrepreneurs give the best advice”.

Organiser, Debbie Carter says “the invitation is open to all those under 40
year olds in business (either their own business, or as an employee) to join other Young Chamber members for a fantastic evening at Ritual Café

David is the CEO of The Thingamajig Laboratory (“Jig Lab” for short) - a boutique R&D consultancy based in Wellington. Jig Lab offers a unique blend of creative software development expertise that combines film quality 3D computation (simulation, rendering and computer vision), digital fabrication, and cloud computing. And if that’s gobbledygook to you, Dave can translate – he speaks twelve languages fluently, including SQL and C++!

As former co-founder and CEO of Ponoko, David took a brand new product from pre-launch (raising millions of dollars from venture capitalists) to international success, including appearing on the cover of Inc Magazine in 20

David’s talk to Young Chamber will be on the topic of “Why unsuccessful entrepreneurs give the best advice”!

David’s expertise with start-ups, his entrepreneurial and agile approach to business, and his technical expertise  combined with his ability to communicate with “geeks and real people alike” make this a talk not to miss.

Debbie wishes to extend grateful thanks to the sponsors for this event - Interislander, Aston Court Motel, and Ritual Café.

Numbers are limited for this event so you must register for a place. Having registered, if you find you then can’t attend - we ask that you let us know as we will have a waitlist for this event. The event format is one that will start with socialising and nibbles, with a cash bar in operation, followed by our speaker followed by questions & answers - and ending with more social networking.
