Keen to see some of the not-so-regular events we've got going on? Visit our Facebook page


Startup Weekend

Startup Weekends are 55-hour long events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, build products and launch startups! Teams go from an idea scrawled on a napkin to a working prototype and maybe even paying customers, all within a single weekend. Startup Weekends are a global phenomenon with events being held in 700+ cities across the world; in New Zealand alone, events have been held in Auckland, Wellington, Tauranga, Christchurch, Queenstown, Invercargill, and of course DUNEDIN!


If you are a student curious about starting a business, or already working on a business idea, Audacious is for you.

Audacious is about being brave enough to take the path less travelled. It is about starting a business, being your own boss, taking a risk, doing what you love and just maybe leaving your mark on the world. It's about considering an alternative to traditional employment and giving you the tools and courage to take control of your future.


Do you want to start a business and need support to make your business sustainable? Co.Starters is a nine-week programme dedicated for aspiring and/or existing entrepreneurs to examine assumptions and turn business ideas into reality.

Next programme starts 3 October 2017 and is hosted by the incredible Valley Project!

Young Enterprise Scheme

Young Enterprise Scheme uses a combination of teachers and members of the business community to provide an experience that is both authentic and relevant to the world we live in. Adapting to changing circumstances, failing fast, feeling success and learning how to collaborate in teams helps students to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit. Our financial literacy resources teach students to be smart with their money so that they can have more choices in life.
