THE LEADING ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAMME FOR NEW ZEALAND’S YOUNG LEADERS.

“Just looking at the experience from the end, and saying confidently, that I was an entirely different person six weeks ago.”

“I’ve learnt so much from dealing with pressure, which is to remember the reason you are here. Learning to deal with difficult situations helps make you a stronger person.”

“I can do it, and don’t need to be someone miraculous or my ideal self of the future. I can do it right now, as I am, and that’s an incredible realisation.”

WHAT IS VENTURE UP?

Venture Up is THE startup accelerator experience for youth in NZ. Since 2015, we’ve put people aged 16 – 24 into a collaborative space, surrounded them with the best in the business and taught them essential leadership skills for their future.

WHO'S INVOLVED?

Venture Up is a programme run by Creative HQ, New Zealand’s Innovation Experts. We’re committed to training up future business leaders through Venture Up.

Various funding partners allow us to offer the programme and keep it accessible.

HOW LONG IS VENTURE UP?

Venture Up runs for four weeks at the beginning of the year. Venture Up will next run in Wellington and will start in January 2018.

We are hoping to have programmes running in regions across New Zealand and will keep you posted.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

Venture Up is for people aged between 16 – 24 years and who have left high school. You don’t have to be at university to apply.

You should be prepared to work full-time for four weeks. It’s going to be fun, but it’s also going to be a lot of hard work.
