Mashup People 2016

Mashup is only possible as people offer their time, expertise and resources. Mashup will bring together some great business minds from across the Bay of Plenty to assist young entrepreneurs in transforming an idea into a product that people want over the weekend. Keep an eye on this page in the coming weeks as people keep coming on board. If interested in being a mentor or part of the support crew contact us here.
