WHAT IS VENTURE UP?

Venture Up is THE startup accelerator experience for youth in NZ.

Since 2015, we’ve put over 200 youth aged 17 – 22 into a collaborative space, surrounded them with the brightest in the business world 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.

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

HOW LONG IS VENTURE UP?

The next Venture Up programme will run for two weeks during the 2019 April school holidays in Queenstown. During those two weeks participants will receive all the tools and support they need to extend your entrepreneurial mindset and build valuable networks.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

Venture Up Queenstown is for anyone aged between 16 – 22 years in NZ. You should be prepared to work full-time for two weeks 9-5pm. It’s going to be fun, but it’s also going to be a bunch of hard work. Get ready!
