Rebecca is a startup enthusiast and organises events and activities to connect people in the District. She is particularly interested in supporting people who are interested in learning more about Startup Businesses and how they can make their innovative ideas fly. She has been the driving force behind Startup Weekend Kapiti 2016, 2017, 2018 and is an active participant in the New Zealand startup community.
Rebecca also runs the Kapiti Startup and Innovate meetup group, and the meetup group for Kapiti Women with home based hobbies.
Other than her day job, she is currently working on a healthcare startup, and dreams of being able to conquer the world with decorative pillows – one sarcastic saying at a time.
