Venture Up 2021
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Venture Up is an immersive course designed to support young aspiring leaders and changemakers.
Since 2015, we’ve brought almost 300 youth together in a collaborative space and taught them essential entrepreneurial leadership skills for their future.
In 2021 the programme will be delivered digitally and all participants will have a chance to win one of 10 places to attend the ultimate business day.
From the 11th of January you’ll have full access to the Venture Up Digital course. This is a library of lessons from some of New Zealand’s best business leaders along with tools that will help you in actioning your ideas.
You’ll have the support of Creative HQ coaches who will be available the entire programme to answer any of your questions and host workshops to get you going with the tools.
If you want help getting started we’ll be hosting workshops across the country where you’ll have the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals, form teams, be introduced to potential mentors and hear from some awesome entrepreneurs who have done it all before.
These in-person workshops will be held in January in Auckland (19th), Christchurch (20th) and Wellington (21st). If you want us to hold a workshop in your town register here.

The ultimate business day!
THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS DAY
A digital programme makes Venture Up more accessible to aspiring entrepreneurs all over New Zealand, however we’d still like to meet participants in person. Therefore 10 participants of Venture Up Digital 2021 will be chosen based on their business pitch to attend an ultimate business day in Wellington on February 11th 2021. Thanks to the Ministry of Youth Development the cost of travel and attending will be fully covered.
The ultimate business day is all about connecting with the right people to support you in your entrepreneurial journey. You’ll meet experts in marketing, branding, accounting, product design, web development, investment and more!
