VENTURE UP 2018 Wellington

In January 2018, we were excited to bring Venture Up back home to Wellington with 26 of New Zealand’s future leaders.

The programme was based at Victoria University School of Architecture & Design, made possible thanks to the help of our wonderful sponsors.

Participants formed ventures from day one and learnt about how to test concepts, validate with customers and build key business skills that will serve them well moving into the future.

With a wealth of mentors and speakers lined up to provide inspiration and tools to challenge the ventures, the teams were pushed throughout the accelerator far beyond their comfort zones.

Each year, we put together a report to summarise insights from the programme.

Venture Up was much more than I could have ever dreamed… The breadth and depth of speakers, workshops and organisers was incredible.
