“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 100 youth aged 16 – 24 into a collaborative space, surrounded them with the best and brightest in the business world and taught them essential leadership skills for their future.
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?
Venture Up normally runs for four weeks at the beginning of the year. The next Venture Up programme is yet to be determined.
We are aiming to expand our programmes into regions across New Zealand in the coming years so stay tuned for more information coming soon.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
Venture Up is for anyone aged between 16 – 24 years in NZ. You must have graduated high school and no, you don’t have to be at university to apply.
You should be prepared to work full-time for four weeks 9-5pm. It’s going to be fun, but it’s also going to be a bunch of hard work. Get ready!
