Following on from the success of earlier events and 2015's two-day Project15: Taking NZ Innovation Global conference, Project16: Creativity in Business and Beyond and various Project Connect events, AUT University and the US Embassy are partnering again to deliver the 2017 Project event series.

Equal parts inspiration and enlightenment, Project Connect events offer a rare chance to meet the global change agents that are spearheading the strategic, creative and commercial implementation of digital technologies and business innovation.

At each Project event, attendees will gain a better understanding of today's opportunities and tomorrow's possibilities, as well as crucial insights into new business ideas, models and strategies. They will meet future business partners, collaborators and co-conspirators and be exposed to ideas that will re-invent  their approach to… everything.
