Venture Up Queenstown: Teams

Queenstown 2019: Our Teams

Within five hours of our #VentureUp19 Queenstown cohort coming together, they formed teams around the problem areas they each felt most strongly about!

The problem pitches ranged from the better management of high-traffic areas in urban areas, to creating a more streamlined internship process – from hiring to how interns are integrated into companies – to helping people manage and balance their busy lifestyles.

And now we have four teams working away towards their showcase on Friday 26 April – so where are they at now?
