Customer Development and Validation
Since 2015, we’ve brought over 200 youth together in a collaborative space, surrounded them with the brightest in business and taught them essential entrepreneurial leadership skills for their future.
In 2020, we’ll be hosting multiple programmes across New Zealand.

Let us know where you want the next Venture Up to be.
With a focus on the three most common methodologies from the startup and innovation world – Design Thinking, Lean Development and Agile Management – you’ll learn to identify an urgent customer problem that needs solving, before diving into analysing existing solutions, prototyping and testing potential solutions with customers.
Gain insights from the experienced business people who visit the programme to share their expertise and stories with you.
Every speaker throughout the programme was an inspiration. So helpful to have them come in and show us from an external perspective on how to apply the VU skills to careers, life, others around us.

The journey will push you out of your comfort zone and provide challenges throughout – in a fully supported environment. Our aim is that by the end of the programme, you feel more confident to self-manage, navigate ambiguity and work with uncertainty.
