Stream 2, 100% Pure NZ of the Rocket Pitch hosted by The ICEHOUSE in Auckland 2012.
Organised by 500 Startups, Geeks on a Plane (#GOAP) is an invite-only tour for startups, investors, and executives to learn about burgeoning technology markets worldwide.
Geeks on a Plane travel by planes, trains, and automobiles to the most exciting international startup scenes with the sole mission of uniting geeks and exploring cross-border opportunities. The result: a lifelong bond with fellow travelers, a wealth of new friends and business contacts in exploding technology markets, and a stronger appreciation for the cultural and economic ties that bind us globally.
Geeks on a Plane really targets innovators and business minds alike to challenge the norm and do something truly inspiring and exciting. Bringing together some house hold names, you can get the best feedback from some truly talented individuals (the geeks themselves) who have been there and done that.
In December 2012 fourteen high profile investors, entrepreneurs and executives made their way from Silicon Valley to New Zealand to engage with the start-up scene down here. Among the fifteen geeks are Dave McClure, Founding Partner of 500 Startups and representatives from top US start-ups, VC firms and corporates.
